In the field of process systems engineering, we advance the areas of systems modeling, optimization, machine learning, and data science to solve challenging problems in science and engineering. Our goal is to develop new mathematical models and computational capabilities to improve the synthesis, design, and operation of chemical process systems, optimize supply chains and enterprise operations, and design molecules and novel materials. Examples of current application areas include: design and operation of energy systems incorporating renewables, sustainable processes and circular economies, carbon capture and climate change, recovery of rare-earth elements and critical minerals, large-scale distributed systems, and resilient industrial supply chains.
