My research on carbon management spans three distinct areas of work: (1) creating novel technologies based on recovered CO₂ and developing a fundamental knowledge of the thermodynamics, chemistry, and design aspects that will help in delivering improved functional and economic performance in pollution prevention and resource recovery applications, (2) developing a process-based understanding of various CO₂ recovery and sequestration processes to evaluate their life cycle environmental impacts and economic burdens and inform ongoing technology research on carbon capture, and (3) designing optimization-based policy and decision-making tools for carbon mitigation and climate change adaptation. To solve these contemporary issues, I harness knowledge and methods from mechanical, chemical, and environmental engineering, operations research, design and decision science, and economics.
