Dr. Reinu Abraham has strong research expertise in second and third generation biomass bioprocessing, biofuel production, immobilisation, encapsulation, process and product development, tailoring polysaccharides properties and developing advanced biomaterials. She obtained her PhD from Deakin University (2014), started teaching at Melbourne University (2016) and since 2018 leads seaweed-based research on process and product development at Centre for Marine Bioproducts Development. She has completed advanced business modelling in 2019 from Harvard University.
Her research interests covers seaweed bioprocessing and biorefinery, extraction of high value bioproducts (alginate, fucoidan, laminarin) for industrial applications, develop advanced alginate products including hybrid hydrogels, biomaterials, 3D-printing bioink with unique tailoring of alginate properties using vortex fluidic device (VFD) - an in-house patented and clean processing technology. She has 20+ publications including peer-reviewed papers, book chapters and conference proceedings.
