About the Editors

Pau Loke Show is an associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, The University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus. After completing his Bachelor's degree in Process and Food Engineering, he furthered his studies, receiving a PhD in Bioprocess Engineering. His research focuses on bioprocess engineering from upstream to downstream processing in biotechnology and industrial microbiology. Dr. Show is also interested in fermentation technology using green methods to produce sustainable chemistry. During his PhD studies, he worked on bioseparation and enzyme recovery in protein downstream processing.

Ooi Chien Wei is Senior Lecturer of Chemical Engineering, Monash University Malaysia. He received his PhD in Bioprocess Engineering from University Putra Malaysia, 2011.

Ling Tau Chuan is a professor at the Institute of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Malaya. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from Birmingham University, UK. His areas of expertise include bioprocess engineering (bioproducts and food processing) and downstream processing (bioseparation, product recovery, adsorbent and porous materials).
