My research interests are in the general area of Process Systems Engineering (PSE), with emphasis on global optimization, optimization-based process control, and numerical computation. My primary research objective is to develop new methods, concepts and tools for the fast and reliable optimization of complex process systems.
Applications in the field of process design and operations aim to develop safe, environmentally and economically sustainable (bio)chemical processes, including micro power generation, integrated biotechnological processes for bioenergy production and waste treatment. Other applications are in the field of signal transduction in systems biology.
