Dr Reza Abbasi profile picture
  • Research Fellow
  • Dept of Chemical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Reza has obtained his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Malaya in advanced process modelling and intelligent control of ethylene polymerization in fluidized bed reactors. He got his master’s degree from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in process optimization and integration of water and energy networks and B.Eng. from Azad University, Iran in chemical Engineering. His research interests include all areas of process systems engineering including process design, process modelling, process optimization, process control, and process integration.

Research Summary

Reza is currently working on a project entitled “Process systems engineering approach to catalytic process design” in collaboration with a group of scientists from UK Catalysis Hub, University of Leeds, University of Durham and University of Oxford. He is a part of the UK Catalysis Hub, as a member of the Optimising, predicting and designing new catalysts theme based at both the UCL and the Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH). The project intends to change the philosophy of catalyst design by linking catalyst development with process design and by taking a holistic, process systems view of the overall process including all the processing steps such as reactors and separation units and their interconnections. The aim is to guide chemical route and catalyst selection on selected processes and then identify how the approach can be implemented in a wider context (e.g., other molecules, other processes), thereby challenging traditional catalytic process development approaches.
