Paving the way for cost-effective cultivated meat production: a chemical engineering approach

More information

I am currently completing the fourth year of an MEng in Chemical Engineering through the student exchange program at the University of Melbourne, having completed the first three years of my degree at University College London. I am very excited to see how my skillset as an engineer can be applied to the fundamental challenges that are restricting the progress of the cultivated meat sector towards commercialisation; chemical engineering is crucial to the optimisation of the process layout and many other aspects.  

I have lived in the New Forest national park in the United Kingdom for almost my entire life, and it is thanks to this that I feel a true sense of appreciation for those who use their careers to contribute to the effort for a more sustainable future; protection of areas of such natural beauty would be impossible without them. Despite this appreciation, I have previously felt a bit helpless with regard to how I can personally assist the effort for a more sustainable future, so I am keen to make full use of this research opportunity as it is evidently a subject of, potentially, great global importance going forwards.
