Research Overview

Prof. Picioreanu's research focuses on the numerical modelling of complex interactions between physical, chemical and biological processes, by applying engineering and computational methods. The emphasis has been in environmental and biotechnological applications, based on his chemical engineering background, continued with more than 25 years research in biotechnology. Water production and reuse is the central research topic. Main interests are processes involving biofilms, both desired (granular sludge, membrane biofilm reactors, microbial fuel cells, phototrophic processes) or as a nuissance (biofouling in membrane processes, bioclogging in porous media, medical applications, biocorrosion). Individual-based modelling and pattern formation in microbiological systems and modelling interactions in coral reefs are other research interests.
