Research Interests

Our group addresses fundamental and practical challenges in Process and Energy Systems Engineering. We develop theoretical and computational methods that rely on concepts, tools and techniques from across multiple disciplines, including mathematical modeling, optimization, dynamical systems simulation and process control.

We work closely with strategic industrial partners to translate the results of our research into applications. Our current projects include managing energy use in residential and commercial buildings, mining large-scale data collected from the operation of chemical processes for information relevant to improving energy efficiency and environmental performance, the development of novel, intensified processes for converting natural gas to liquids, and coordinating production management and process control in energy-intensive processes.
