I am the director for the laboratory for Energy and Process Systems Engineering (EPSE) at ETH Zurich. The goal of my research is the design of sustainable energy and chemical process systems by integrating energy systems engineering, adsorption-based systems, physical property measurements, and computer-aided molecular design with life cycle assessment.
Research interests: life cycle assessment, carbon capture and utilization, sorption technologies, integrated molecular and process design, property measurements
I am a postdoc in the group of André Bardow at ETH Zurich. I have done my Ph.D. at RWTH Aachen University in the integrated design of processes and molecules in energy and chemical engineering, exploring the link of process modeling, predictive thermodynamics, and molecular design. As part of the PrISMa project, I am exploring how environmental aspects can be incorporated in the materials screening and how the data-driven materials approaches can be used to efficiently assess materials on the process-level. Furthermore, I support the life cycle assessment of the identified promising materials to determine their environmental impact.
Research interests: molecular design, optimization, life cycle assessment, process design
I am a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. André Bardow’s group at ETH Zurich. I obtained my Ph.D. from Stanford University (USA) under the supervision of Prof. Evan Reed. During my Ph.D., I developed statistical methods to accelerate Molecular Dynamics simulations using Kinetic Monte Carlo techniques and random graph theory. As a member of the PrISMa project, I am studying how to extend the LCA layer of our PrISMa platform to include direct air capture. In particular, I will study different simulation techniques to accelerate the predictions of material properties. I will also refine the estimation of the environmental impacts of material synthesis.
Research interests: molecular simulations, material properties estimation, life cycle assessment, direct air capture, carbon capture and storage.
I am a postdoc in Prof. André Bardow’s group at ETH Zurich. I obtained my Ph.D. from Zhejiang University under the supervision of Prof. Chuanhou Gao and Prof. Nikolaos Sahinidis (at Georgia Tech). During my Ph.D., I designed novel machine-learning methods for small-data problems by leveraging transfer learning, feature selection, and knowledge integration techniques. As a member of the PrISMa project, I will investigate how to extend the LCA layer our PrISMa platform to include direct air capture. Moreover, I will refine the estimation of the environmental impacts of material synthesis.
