Major research interests

  • Nonlinear dynamics and control of chemical processes including
    • Particulate processes (fluidized bed granulation and agglomeration, crystallization)
    • Integrated chemical processes (e.g. reactive distillation, chromatographic reactors, membrane reactors)
    • Chromatographic processes
  • Synthesis and mixed integer nonlinear optimization of novel process concepts
  • Modeling and dynamics of bioprocesses
