Profile Summary 

Dr Archishman Bose is an Eli Lilly Lecturer in Process and Chemical Engineering, University College Cork (UCC) and a Principal Investigator (PI) of the Circular Economy, Energy, and Environmental Systems (CEEES) Research Group, part of MaREI, the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) research centre for energy, climate and marine. Currently he also serves as the programme director of the PGDip/MEngSc Pharmaceutical & Biophamraceutical Engineering in UCC.

Dr Archishman Bose completed his PhD in Engineering in 2022 on Photosynthetic Biogas Upgrading, co-funded by SFI and Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) at University College Cork. This work resulted in the publication of 7 peer-reviewed journal papers on topics such as optimisation of bubble column operations and multi-criteria performance assessment of the production of biomethane with food and biofertiliser. His other qualifications include a Double Degree Masters in Sustainable Energy Engineering, with a special focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and academic-industry collaborative research and a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering. In addition, he also has a couple of years of work experience as a construction and commissioning engineer and piping design engineer in a world-leading industrial and medical gas manufacturing establishment.

His expertise and research interest lies in: biochemical and bioprocess engineering, biopharmaceuticals, process design and simulation, carbon capture and utilisation, design of experiments, techno-economic (TEA) and life cycle assessments (LCA); circular bioeconomy systems. Dr Archishman Bose have published over 20 peer-reviewed academic journal papers in top tier journals such as; Biotechnology Advances, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews and Chemical Engineering Journal.

Currently he is leading multiple projects on interdisciplinary circular bioeconomy systems funded by Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) and SFI.
