My research interests lie at the intersection of optimization, modeling, uncertainty, and computer science. I am interested in the modeling and optimization of complex problems related with energy systems, chemical engineering, and oil industries. Target applications include integration, planning and scheduling of renewable energy systems, process synthesis, planning and scheduling of chemical engineering systems, and path planning of autonomous under-water vehicles. Development of mathematical programming methodologies, namely combinatorial optimization models, continuous optimization models, deterministic global optimization solution approaches, optimization under uncertainty models, and decomposition algorithms to solve large-scale problems.
Keywords: Optimization, stochastic programming, robust optimization, global optimization, Process Systems Engineering, energy systems, renewable energy, MILP, MINLP, NLP, scheduling, planning, uncertainty, risk management.
