主 讲 人：Richard Lakerveld
主讲人单位：Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China
Richard Lakerveld received his chemical engineering education from Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. He obtained both his MSc and PhD degree cum laude. His PhD research focused on the design and optimization of industrial crystallization processes. He was a Postdoctoral Associate for two years at the Process Systems Engineering Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked on plant-wide control of continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing and on optimal control of directed self-assembly. He was an assistant professor at Delft University of Technology before joining the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as an assistant professor in 2014. He was the recipient of several personal awards including an early career award from the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO Veni, 2013), the Novartis-MIT Enabling Control System Award (2013), and two consecutive GRF Awards (2016, 2017) from Hong Kong's Science Foundation, which are aimed at supporting cutting-edge research. His research interests are related to the control and optimization of directed self-assembly and pharmaceutical crystallization processes.
