Multi-Scale Systems Engineering for Energy, Sustainability, Manufacturing and Data  

Fengqi You 

Roxanne E. and Michael J. Zak Professor 

Cornell University  

Time: 16:00-17:30, Dec.26, 2018(Wednesday) 

Site: Lecture Hall, Department of  Energy and Power Engineering  

Abstract: 

Process systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field that takes a complex systems approach for analysis, modeling, simulation, optimization, design, control, and operations of complex engineering systems over their life cycles. The complex systems approach plays an important role in meeting the grand challenges that civilization is facing in areas such as energy, environment, food, manufacturing, etc. The presentation will briefly review our research activities in this field that aims to develop fundamental theory, computational algorithms and systems technologies for smart manufacturing, data analytics, energy systems, and sustainability. Particular emphasis will be placed on multi-scale research problems and applications that range from molecular and materials systems, to unit operations and manufacturing processes, and to supply chains and global ecosystems.  

Biography: 

Fengqi You is the Roxanne E. and Michael J. Zak Professor at Cornell University, and is affiliated with the Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the graduate fields of Operations Research and Information Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Center of Applied Mathematics, and Systems Engineering Program. He also serves as the Associate Director of Cornell Energy Systems Institute, Director of Cornell Systems PhD program, and a leadership committee member of Cornell Initiative for Digital Agriculture. He was on the faculty of Northwestern University from 2011 to 2016, and worked at Argonne National Laboratory as an Argonne Scholar from 2009 to 2011. He has published more than 120 peer-reviewed articles in leading journals, and has an h-index of 48. Some of his research results have been editorially highlighted in Science and Nature, featured on journal covers (e.g. Energy & Environmental Science, ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, andIndustrial & Engineering Chemistry Research), and covered by major media outlets (e.g. The New York Times, BBC, BusinessWeek, and National Geographic). His recent awards include American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) W. David Smith, Jr. Publication Award (2011), Northwestern-Argonne Early Career Investigator Award (2013), National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2016), AIChE Environmental Division Early Career Award (2017), AIChE Sustainable Engineering Research Excellence Award (2017), Computing and Systems Technology (CAST) Outstanding Young Researcher Award from AIChE (2018), Cornell Engineering Research Excellence Award (2018), and ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship Award (2018), as well as a number of best paper awards and most-cited article recognitions. He is currently an Associate Editor ofComputers & Chemical Engineering, a Consulting Editor of AIChE Journal, and an editorial board member of several leading journals (e.g. ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering andIndustrial & Engineering Chemistry Research). His research focuses on the development of novel computational models, optimization algorithms, statistical machine learning methods, and multi-scale systems analysis tools for smart manufacturing, digital agriculture, data analytics, energy systems, and sustainability.
