How microorganisms and chemical compounds convert substrates into different goods? The use of mathematical models can help explain the phenomena involved in transformation. If we understand it, we can improve it.
Carlos Eduardo Robles Rodriguez is a postdoctoral researcher in the Control Systems group of the Electrical Engineering department of TU/e. He is currently working in the INSPEC (Integrating Sensor Based Process Monitoring and Advanced Process Control) project.
His research interests include: modeling of (bio) chemical systems, model reduction, state estimation, parameters estimation, experimental design and process control. His research seeks to understand the relevant features of systems at different levels of complexity depending on the knowledge objectives.
Carlos Eduardo Robles Rodriguez holds a BSc (2009) and MSc (2013) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Guadalajara (Mexico). He obtained his PhD in Microbial Engineering from the French National Institute of Applied Sciences of Toulouse in the Toulouse Biotechnology Institute (TBI). His PhD thesis was about modeling and optimization of fermentation processes.
After graduation, he became a postdoc at the Catholic University of Louvain (UCLouvain, Belgium) where he collaborated in two projects regarding wind power prediction, and model-based control for wastewater treatment plants.
In 2018, he joined the Delft Center of Systems and Control (DCSC) at TU Deft to work as a postdoc in model reduction of biochemical systems with bi-stability. Recently, he moved to Eindhoven to be work as a postdoc in the Control and Systems group of the Electrical Engineering department at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
