Main Focus

Methods of computer aided modeling, analysis, synthesis and control of complex chemical processes with special emphasis on nonlinear dynamics of chemical processes

Applications:

  • Analysis, synthesis and dynamics of integrated chemical processes (reactive distillation, chromatographic reactors, membrane reactors etc.)
  • Population balance modeling and dynamics of particulate systems (crystallization, granulation, virus infection in cell cultures)
  • Plantwide dynamics and control of chemical processes
