Laboratory for Multiscale Systems
Research in the Laboratory for Multiscale Systems (LMS) focusses on solving problems across a spectrum of size scales – from molecular systems to larger industrial scale systems.
In many cases, the relationship between properties or variables at different scales is of direct relevance. For example, the control of crystal properties at the nano- and microscale levels by manipulated variables, such as temperature, at the macroscale level.
Using advanced process systems engineering approaches, our research is tackling a range of industry-relevant problems in particulate systems, energy systems, and bio-systems.

Ali Abbas and his team win the PSE MBI runner-up prize [05 October 2015]
Congratulations to the team of Ali Abbas, Minh Tri Luu and Norhuda Abdul Manaf for winning the Process Systems Enterprise Model-Based Innovation Prize runner up for their paper titled "Dynamic modelling and control strategies for flexible operation of amine-based post-combustion CO2 capture systems”.
The judges were particularly impressed by the paper, summarising it as “excellent research illustrating the use of gPROMS for the modelling, simulation and advanced control of amine-based post combustion CO2 capture processes. The proposed model has been validated using pilot plant data and its predictive power is nicely demonstrated. The model then provides the basis for investigating three control schemes.”
Ignite Magazine – March 2014 Issue [March 2014]
Congratulations to Mouna Hamad on featuring in the cover story for the March 2014 issue of Ignite Magazine. Ignite is the biannual magazine for alumni and friends of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies.
Mouna is currently completing her PhD studies researching optimal methods for the expansion of stem cells. While this work is generic and can prepare supplies of stem cells for various research and disease applications, Mouna is focusing on Leukemia and cardiovascular disease. More

Laboratory for Multiscale Systems is now supported by a Certified PC2 facility[September 2012]
The Laboratory for Multiscale Systems (LMS) is pleased to announce the certification of the research laboratory on level 4 of the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. The PC2 (Physical Containment level 2) certification was secured from the Federal Government’s Office of Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) in August. PC2 certification is necessary for dealings and further research in genetically modified organisms. Achieving PC2 status is the final milestone in the commissioning of this facility. “This facility is critical for our Systems Biology research where we are attempting to understand dynamic behaviour of cell systems through the use of computational modelling and optimisation techniques”, Dr Ali Abbas, Director of LMS, said.
The Laboratory for Multiscale Systems, led by Dr Ali Abbas, has received a grant from Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research & Development to undertake research on post-combustion carbon capture processes. More
