Team Leader Bioprocessing Fermentation


Fermentation process development expert

I am a Team Leader in the Biotechnologies division specialising in Bioprocessing and Fermentation. My role mainly involves providing leadership in fermentation process development and facilitating the transfer of technology to companies for the commercialisation of R&D.

I am passionate about partnering with New Zealand companies, assisting them in adopting new processes, launching innovative products, and fostering their growth. As a result of this I’m proud to be building and growing this current team of amazing scientists and seeing the impact they make for New Zealand companies.

Industry leadership stems from the collaborative efforts which have built up the Bioresource Processing Alliance (BPA) into a notable national research body.

Together with my team, I am dedicated to driving innovation, facilitating technology transfer, and fostering the growth of New Zealand's biotechnology sector.
