Research Profile

Archishman Bose

Biography

Dr Archishman Bose is an Eli Lilly Lecturer in Process and Chemical Engineering, University College Cork (UCC) and is a Principal Investigator (PI) of the Circular Economy, Energy, and Environmental Systems (CEEES) Research Group, part of MaREI, the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) research centre for energy, climate and marine. Dr Bose completed his PhD in Engineering in 2022 on Photosynthetic Biogas Upgrading, co-funded by SFI and Gas Networks Ireland (GNI). This work resulted in the publication of 7 peer-reviewed journal papers (2 under review) on topics such as optimisation of bubble column operations and multi-criteria performance assessment of the production of biomethane with food and biofertiliser. His other qualifications include a Double Degree Masters in Sustainable Energy Engineering, with a special focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and academic-industry collaborative research and a bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering. In addition, Dr Bose also has a couple of years of work experience as a construction and commissioning engineer and piping design engineer in a world-leading industrial and medical gas manufacturing establishment.

Dr Bose has an h-index of 6 and has published 16 peer-reviewed academic journal papers in top tier journals such as; Biotechnology Advances and Chemical Engineering Journal. His expertise and research interest lies in: biochemical and bioprocess engineering, biopharmaceuticals, process design and simulation, carbon capture and utilisation, design of experiments, techno-economic (TEA) and life cycle assessments (LCA); circular bioeconomy systems.

Research Interests

Currently, I have interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research interests which include:
  • Biochemical and bioprocessing engineering for co-production of advanced pharmaceuticals, chemicals and/or energy 
  • Microalgae biorefinery for the production of advanced biopharmaceuticals, biochemicals and bioenergy
