Professor Rafiqul Gani has been a pioneering researcher and thought leader in the field of process systems engineering (PSE), and sustainability has been an integral component of his work for more than 30 years. He has made seminal contributions in both education and research through his scholarly papers/presentations as well as tools/software, which continue to impact chemical engineering students and practitioners worldwide. He has coauthored 1 textbook, 5 edited books, 38 book chapters, and 522 refereed papers, which have been cited an impressive ~18,000 times and resulted in an h-index of 65 according to Google Scholar. Furthermore, Dr. Gani has trained an impressive 61 Ph.D. students, 104 Masters students, 20 postdoctoral scholars, who are contributing to the sustainable development of the chemical industry, or academicians training the next generation of students in the latest methods/tools for sustainable process/product design. Dr. Gani is the recipient of several awards including the 2010 Innovative Contribution in Computer Aided Process Engineering (CAPE) from the European Federation of Chemical Engineers (EFCE), the 2015 AIChE Computing and Systems Technology (CAST) Computing in Chemical Engineering Award, and the 2019 EFCE Jacques Villermaux Medal.
