Dr. De la Hoz Siegler’s research focuses in the modeling and optimization of bioprocesses and the development of process analytical technologies for enabling bioprocess control. His research in microalgal bioprocessing has resulted in an increased understanding of microalgal dynamics, allowing the formulation of nonlinear model-predictive control algorithms and resulting in very high culture density and productivity. He has been the recipient of numerous research and teaching awards and have six years of combined industrial and consulting experience as a Process Engineer and as a Research Engineer.
