Biography

I am Professor of Process Systems Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London located in central London. In 2012 and early 2013, I was seconded to UCL Australia in Adelaide to hold the Santos Chair of Energy & Resources and to take on the role of Academic Director in the School of Energy and Resources at UCL Australia. I previously held an EPSRC Advanced Fellowship. A short biography with a little more detail is available elsewhere.

Research Summary

Professor Fraga's interests lie at the interfaces between engineering, mathematics and computer science.  He is specifically interested in the design of novel computer algorithms and mathematical techniques and their application to problems in process engineering.  In the past, his research has concentrated on the development of methods for automated process design, or process synthesis, with the development of tools for the design of profitable, safe, environmentally benign chemical plants.  These tools, including most prominently the Jacaranda system, use a variety of optimization methods and specially targeted visualization and interaction procedures to provide a system which is both powerful and easy to use.  A full summary of research activities and interests, are available from Professor Fraga's home pages.

Teaching Summary

I teach in the undergraduate programme, specifically the whole of CENG1004 Introduction to Chemical Engineering (process analysis, unit operations) and parts of CENG2003 Process Engineering (process design, heat exchanger networks, critical path analysis).  I am also involved in the design project, CENG3006.
