Ignacio E. Grossmann
Rudolph R. and Florence Dean University Professor of Chemical Engineering
When to call: Grossmann's research concerns optimal design of water networks, energy integration networks, biofuel plants, offshore oil and gas facilities, shale gas infrastructure and water management, and demand side management. He also works in the areas of mixed-integer programming and multistage stochastic programming.
Ignacio Grossmann talks about optimization models and methods to address problems in process systems engineering. This includes mixed-integer optimization, which can save time and money, as well as use fewer resources and reduce environmental impact in processes like shale gas extraction and biofuels processing. Grossmann is a professor of chemical engineering and the director of the Center for Advanced Process Decision Making.
