Research Interests

Our research interests lie within the areas of process systems engineering for:

- creating efficient ways to harvest natural resources,

- reducing the costs of chemical production systems and

- minimizing the disposal of ecologically unfavorable materials.

In process systems engineering, these objectives generally demand the integration of the broad topics such as

- decision making under uncertainty,

- process modeling, synthesis, identification, intensification, scheduling, monitoring, control,

- machine learning and artificial intelligence.

The integration of such topics brings about fairly complex, usually large-scale mathematical optimization problems which must be formulated, analyzed and solved in a reliable and efficient manner.

                       -- OUR CURRENT INTEREST IS ON INTEGRATED RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS --                   

Motivated undergraduate/graduate students are always welcome to join us. Contact Erdal Aydın for details. (29/11/2019)
