Educational Background

  • Postdoctoral Research, Princeton University, 2011 - 2014
  • Ph.D., Chemical Engineering, National University of Singapore - 2010
  • B.S., Chemical Engineering, Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology - 2005

Research Interests

    • Nonlinear Discrete/Continuous Optimization
    • Computer-aided Process Intensification
    • Integration of Design and Operation
    • Systems and Technoeconomic Analysis
    • Decarbonization pathways; CO2 capture and utilization
    • Sustainable Hydrogen Economy
    • Multiscale Process Systems Engineering

    We are interested in developing application-oriented theory, computational tools, algorithms, and optimization methods for complex and multi-scale systems. The methodologies and tools that we develop are applied to the design and discovery of advanced materials and processes for sustainable fuels and chemicals, carbon capture, sustainable hydrogen, energy storage technology selection, and circular economy, among others.
