Research Areas

Increasing energy demand, depletion of natural resources and environmental concerns have stimulated an intensive research in finding a new energy vector and developing energy efficient cost effective technology. With this objective, we are working in the area of renewable energy and process intensification. Our current research also involves the nonlinear controller synthesis and its application in controlling fuel cells and thermally integrated separation processes. We are also devoted in formulating the kinetic and phase equilibrium models and their validation for gas hydrates that conserve natural gas in oceanic and arctic sediments perhaps twice the total amount of other fossil fuels present today.
