Cristian Picioreanu is a Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology since 2021. Previously he worked 25 years at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, Professor of Environmental Biotechnology. His research focuses on the numerical modelling of interactions between physical, chemical and biological processes in environmental and biotechnological applications, by applying (bio)chemical engineering and computational methods. Internationally recognized for leading research in the physical-based numerical modelling of biofilms. Applied research on water production and water treatment, based on quantitative models bridging multiple spatial and temporal scales.
