RESEARCH
INTERESTS

The
focus of my research is to develop the concept of sustainable design, which
involves process-design activities that lead to economic growth, environmental
protection, and social progress for the current generation without compromising
the potential of future generations to have an ecosystem that meets their needs.
The ultimate target of my research activities is to conserve natural resources
(mass and energy), recycle and reuse materials, prevent pollution, enhance
yield, improve quality, advance inherent safety, and increase profitability. To
achieve the desire goals a systematic framework and associated concepts and
tools are necessary to guide designer methodically with the global insight of
the process, to identify root causes of the problems or key areas of
opportunities, to benchmark the performance of the process, and to develop a
set of design recommendations that can attain the true potential of the
process. My research background of process integration, process control and
specially process optimization assist me for developing new concepts and tools
to systematically enhance and reconcile various process objectives, such as
cost effectiveness, yield enhancement, energy efficiency, and pollution
prevention. I am working last few years to develop such methodical sustainable
approaches for various processes starting from small scale production
(producing valuable pharmaceutical drags using liquid chromatography) to large
scale facility (managing industrial flares during abnormal situations). As my
specialization is to work with different kinds of optimization algorithms and
control concepts, I would also like to face the challenges from process
uncertainty and from the black box problems which can be mitigated using
sustainable process integration. My knowledge of research is not limited to the
industrial processes, I have also implemented my acquire optimization knowledge
to develop some adaptable financial modelling/algorithms which can be used in
the most challenging and unpredictable global financial markets. The strong
point of my research activity is that I can use my long experience of capital
market to develop long term view for energy and commodity prices; this
knowledge can be integrated with my developed framework to make the
system/design more robust to face different kind of challenges including
unpredictable price fluctuations (price fluctuations of oil, natural gas etc.),
unpredictable incidents (industrial flaring) or unknown disturbances (sudden
changes in process parameters).
