John M. Woodley is a bioprocess engineer who has had an interest in the biological synthesis of useful chemicals, using biocatalysis and fermentation for that last 30 years. His research is at the interface of bioprocess engineering, process chemistry and reaction engineering. It includes both theoretical and experimental work at different scales: Multi-step biocatalysis, including systems biocatalysis and flow chemistry Downstream processing from biocatalytic reactors and fermentations, including ISPR Modelling tools for the assessment of bioprocesses, including thermodynamics, kinetics, process simulation, economic evaluation Bio-oxidations, including oxygen supply methods Enzymes currently under investigation include alcohol oxidases, carbohydrate oxidases, cytochrome P450s, Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenases and transaminases.
