Short bio

My research has focused on developing new process engineering approaches to model and control biosystems relevant in medicine and the food industry. Nowadays, complex biological systems may be analysed with the help of engineering approaches thanks to newer, faster and more quantitative measuring devices. Mathematical descriptions of such systems are, however, the critical challenge. An essential feature of my work is the design of efficient methods and tools to derive mechanistic models with sufficient predictive capabilities for control and optimisation. My current goal is to model-based control of bacterial resistance to antimicrobials (AMR) in the food industry: a new and ambitious research line I started in 2015 within the context of a JIN (Proyecto Nacional para Jóvenes INvestigadores) and that I continue nowadays in the context of another JIN project with a Ramón y Cajal Award. More details can be seen on my Webpage or social Networks.
