Cathy is a Mechanical Engineering graduate with a MSc (Dist.) in Manufacturing Processes and Management. She is currently completing her PhD at Loughborough University. Cathy is interested in the industry side of regenerative medicine, particularly in process efficiency that allows the translation of scientific research to customer needs.
PhD Thesis Title: Delivering Operational Optimization of Cell Therapy Manufacturing Through Cell Characteristics
She is currently conducting research in the Centre for Biological Engineering at Loughborough University in collaboration with Advance Bioprocess and Hitachi Chemical. Her research aims to reduce cost and increase quality in the manufacturing aspect of regenerative medicine by improving efficiency and controllability of its processes. To do so, she is exploring the use of mechanistic models that help to predict and then achieve desired outcomes of the manufacturing processes.
