Personal profile


Professor Beng Ti  Tey has joined School of Engineering, Monash University Malaysia in 2011, and  is currently the Head of Chemical Engineering Discipline. He obtained his PhD (Chemical Engineering) from Birmingham University UK in 2001, and Chartered Engineer from Engineering Council, UK in 2011.  Prof. Tey is active in research and has published more than 150 journal papers in ISI journals. Prof Tey, together with his collaborators has secured a total of 50 research grants worth more than RM21.8 million in the past 20 years. He is also the lead inventor for 10 patents being filled in Malaysia and the Patent Cooperation Treaty. He has successfully supervised 30 PhD, 25 MS thesis and more than 130 undergraduate dissertations to completion. Prof. Tey's research area can be broadly described as process development of biopharmaceutical production and microencapsulation for drug delivery & food application.  His group has successfully applying direct cell engineering approaches to manipulate apoptosis, and cell proliferation that resulted in substantial improvements in cell lines of biopharmaceutical importance. He is also interested in the production and purification of virus-like-particles (VLP), and has successfully developed several direct and fast purification methods to purify the recombinant VLPs from microbial cell lysate.  Prof Tey is the Subject Editor for Food and Bioproducts Processing journal.
