Keynote Speaker I

Prof. Ewa Dluska

Warsaw University of Technology, Poland

Education and work experience:
PhD (1997) and DSc (2012) in Chemical Engineering from the Warsaw University of Technology. Research fellowship at University of Oxford in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in encapsulation of stem cells (2013).
My specific research interests lie in:
Encapsulation of drugs/ living cells, release processes, development of multiple emulsions with bioactive agents in a Couette-Taylor Flow bioreactor for drug delivery systems.
Modelling of drug release process from multiple emulsions and micro/nanoparticles.
Separation processes in environmental protection: organic compounds and heavy metals removal.
Chemical Reactor Engineering - multiphase flow.
Alternative emulsion-based fuels.
Flue Gas Cleaning: filtration of aerosols.
Physical chemistry
Mass transfer processes
Simple and multiple emulsions in new technologies

Keynote Speaker II

Prof. Ferda Mavituna

The University of Manchester, UK

Ferda Mavituna is currently a Professor of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering in the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science at The University of Manchester, UK. She obtained her degree of B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering with the Distinction of High Honours and the First Prize in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Middle East Technical University (METU), in Ankara, Turkey in 1973. Her degrees of M.Sc. in Advanced Chemical Engineering and PhD in Chemical Engineering were awarded by the Victoria University of Manchester, UK in 1974 and 1979, respectively. She was chosen for the IChemE and SERC Special Award during 1978-1980 in order to write the Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology Handbook with Professor Bernard Atkinson (Macmillan Publishers Ltd). Ferda became a lecturer in the Chemical Engineering Department of UMIST, Manchester in 1980. She was awarded the Senior CIBA-GEIGY Fellowship in 1989 for sabbatical at ETH Zurich. Her research was supported by both industrial companies, notably Albright and Wilson and Kaneka as well as the research councils. Her main research covers specialty chemicals production, such as pharmaceuticals by freely suspended and immobilised microbial, plant and animal cell cultures. In her research, Ferda uses both experimental and theoretical/computational approaches such as kinetics, mass transfer and metabolic flux balance analysis. She has also taught a wide range of chemical engineering and bioprocess engineering courses at graduate and undergraduate levels.
