Dr. Lim studies bioreaction and bioreactor engineering, modeling, optimization and control of bioreactors, cellular regulation, recombinant DNA technology, and bioremediation.
Dr. Lim's current research projects include a profile optimization and neural network modeling of biological processes that cannot be modeled with equations. This effort involvesÖ He also is modelling lysine fermentation in various bioreactors by incorporating the mass transfer effect, and he is studying the copy number-dependent dynamic behavior of recombinant cells.
