Brief Description of the Lab

The Multi-scale Systems Engineering Laboratory (MSEL) is part of the Texas A&M Energy Institute and it is located in the Engineering Research Building (3rd Floor) and the Jack E. Brown Building, Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering (Rooms 341, 304, 332, and 335) at Texas A&M University. The teaching activities include lectures in Mixed-Integer Non-Linear Optimization and Deterministic Global Optimization.

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 Biology
