Using the tools of genetic engineering, recombinant proteins can be produced using a variety of expression systems and hosts, including microbial, mammalian, insect, plant or algal cells grown in bioreactors as well as transgenic animals and plants. Our laboratory is developing novel expression systems (i.e. the genetic instructions that direct the host cell to produce the non-native protein) and bioprocess engineering technologies to produce recombinant proteins, including human therapeutic proteins, enzymes for cellulose degradation, and biopolymers for materials applications, using whole plants, harvested plant tissues or plant cells grown in-vitro in bioreactors.

Research

The development of numerical methods for the solution of complex problems in engineering and science, mostly at the continuum scale. Complex rheology: multiscale and continuum methods for incompressible viscoelastic flows. Multiphase flows: compressible and incompressible flows of fluids and elastic-plastic solids in time-dependent domains, interfacial processes. Constitutive modeling: equations of state, thermodynamic modeling, symmetry invariants. Charged systems: plasma physics, boundary charge and bilayer problems.

Research

Our research group uses fundamental theoretical and experimental approaches to study transport processes involving small particles in polymer solutions and gels. This work has applications in bioseparation techniques, most of which make use of the sieving effect of hydrogels to separate biological macromolecules, and also in numerous suspension-processing operations. Our overall effort has significant overlap with the fields of colloid science, fluid mechanics and biochemical engineering.

My research is in complex fluids, with an emphasis on using advanced high-speed video techniques to extract quantitative measurements from complicated phenomena. My group strives to answer fundamental scientific questions about a variety of systems where the transport behavior is paramount. Recent topics include: electrocoalescence of charged droplets, shear-induced deformation of red blood cells, and electrically-induced aggregation of food colloids.

Research

Dr. Runnebaum has a joint appointment as Assistant Professor in Viticulture & Enology and in Chemical Engineering & Materials Science. His research program aims to combine his interests in sustainable winemaking with his research background in nanomaterials, adsorption, heterogeneous catalysis, and reaction engineering. Winemaking-related projects include 1) Developing materials to capture CO2 and volatile organic compounds, especially from fermentation; 2) Developing fundamental understanding for the production of chemicals from winery waste streams; and 3) Designing solid-state materials for the replacement of solution-based treatments, particularly those that could improve sustainability. In addition, Dr. Runnebaum continues to investigate fundamental structure-activity relationships in chemical adsorption and reaction by nanomaterials, including zeolites and supported organometallic clusters.
