My research focuses on utilization of biofuel co-products, development of value-added products and processes, sustainability of biorenewable resources, improvements in processing efficiencies, techno-economic modeling, and life cycle assessment. My expertise is in value-added product development, alternative recycling and reprocessing strategies, modeling and simulation of processing systems, plant layout and process design. My professional interests focus on creating sustainable pathways forward for the emerging bio-based economy, by developing, analyzing, and optimizing processes and products that maximize value and minimize negative consequences for all stakeholders.
