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.

  • 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.
