Dr.-Ing. Matthias Rüdt studied chemistry and biotechnology at ETH Zurich with an exchange at Stanford University for his Master thesis.

After a two-year interlude in biopharmaceutical downstream process development at Novartis, he returned to academia for his PhD (Doktor der Ingenieurswissenschaften, completed with summa cum laude) with a subsequent PostDoc at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) focusing on Process Analytical Technology (PAT) for downstream processing of biopharmaceuticals. Returning to industry, Matthias worked at Novartis and Roche in clinical and commercial manufacturing as process engineer before assuming his current position as associate professor at HES-SO Valais-Wallis. During his previous career, Matthias Rüdt authored publications on PAT, downstream processing, chemometrics, mechanistic modeling, issued a patent and received multiple prices for conference publications.

Matthias Rüdt’s current research interests are:

  • Downstream processing of biotechnological products, scale-up and scale-down
  • Smart sensors for biopharmaceutical process development and production
  • Commercial manufacturing of proteins and real-time monitoring and control thereof
  • Automatization of process development
  • Optical spectroscopy for PAT applications (including UV/Vis, fluorescence, NIR, Raman spectroscopy)
  • Machine learning and multivariate statistical control for process engineering
  • Chemometrics for biotechnological processes.
