Brief Description of the Lab

The Computer-Aided Systems Laboratory is located in A-329, A-425, and A-426 of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University. The teaching activities include lectures in the undergraduate courses of Design, Synthesis and Optimization of Chemical Processes and Process Control and lectures in the graduate courses of Nonlinear and Mixed-Integer Optimization: Fundamentals and Applications, Global Optimization, and Systems Engineering.

The research activities focus on five main areas:

  1. Product and Process Design, Synthesis and Discovery
  2. Product and Process Operations: Scheduling and Planning
  3. Discrete-Continuous Nonlinear Optimization
  4. Deterministic Global Optimization
  5. Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics
