Research interests

My research focuses on the development of advanced separation processes and reactive separations, in particular for challenging separation problems. More details can be found on the pages of our research group Integrated Separation Processes.

Research topics in brief:

  • Process integration on flowsheet and apparatus level
    • Optimal design of reactive and hybrid separation processes by NLP methods
    • in silico synthesis of such processes by MINLP methods
  • Advanced operating modes and design methods for adsorptive and chromatographic processes, e.g.
    • Simulated moving bed (SMB) processes
    • Steady-state recycling (SSR) processes
    • Reactive chromatography
    • Pressure-swing adsorption (PSA)
  • Local equilibrium theory for chromatography and integrated reaction-separation systems
  • Membrane separations
  • Enantioseparations
