Research Interests and focus areas

Process synthesis, integration and optimisation, for sustainable development:

  • The use of conceptual (pinch) and mathematical programming techniques for materials, water and energy recovery/integration to optimise energy usage and achieve pollution reduction in chemical and allied plants.
  • The use of mathematical programming methods for the synthesis and optimisation of integrated resource networks.
  • Process safety
  • Systemic approach to understanding mining accident causality
