Ezra's Round Table / Systems Engineering: Seyed Soheil Mansouri (DTU) - Process Systems Engineering at the Interface of Innovation, Education and Policy




Process systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field within Chemical and Biochemical Engineering that its main objective is the development of systematic procedures based on mathematical models and computational techniques for the analysis, design, operation, control, and optimization of process systems. These can range from industrial-scale processes in chemical, bio-/pharmaceutical, and agro-chemical to microsystems, and more recently is extended to molecular and bio-molecular systems. In this talk, first, an overview of the status within process systems engineering will be given. This will be followed by examples of extending process systems engineering methods and tools to education, policy and providing innovative solutions for different applications in chemical and bio-manufacturing.

Dr. Seyed Soheil Mansouri is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and affiliate faculty at the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research in Beijing, China. He received his Ph.D. (2016) and MSc (2013) in chemical and biochemical engineering both from DTU. His current research is focused on Process Systems Engineering, System Dynamics, EdTech focused on Computational Agility (AI and Quantum Computing), Socio-Economic-Technological Analysis of Complex Dynamic Systems, Process Synthesis, Design, Control and Intensification with a focus on Chemical, Pharmaceutical, and Bio-manufacturing sectors. He is a senior member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and a Danish delegate to the Computer-Aided Process Engineering (CAPE) Working Party of the European Federation of Chemical Engineers (EFCE). He is also treasurer and board member of the European Committee for the Use of Computers in Chemical Engineering Education (EURECHA).
