Travel Awards 2019
We are pleased to announce the two winners of 2019 Processes Travel Awards (800 Swiss Francs each), given to Dr. Pratham Arora, a postdoctoral fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, and Ms. Grazia Leonzio, a Ph.D. student at the University of L’Aquila, Italy.
Dr. Arora’s research focuses on process modelling and simulation. He plans to attend the Foundations of Computer-Aided Process Design (FOCAPD 2019) in Copper Mountain, USA, to present his work entitled “Hydrothermal liquifaction of algae for bio-crude production: Effects of CO2 sourcing on economics and LCA.”
Ms. Leonzio works on modeling and process simulation of chemical processes, carbon capture, storage and utilization. She plans to attend the 29th European Symposium on Computer-Aided Process Engineering (ESCAPE-29) in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, to present her work entitled “Innovative application of statistical analysis for the optimization of CO2 absorption from flue gas with ionic liquid”.
Congratulations to Dr. Arora and Ms. Leonzio. We are grateful to all who submitted applications.

Travel Award 2018
I am pleased to announce the winner of the inaugural Processes Travel Award, given to an outstanding post-doctoral researcher or Ph.D. student. The Travel Award for 2018 was granted to Mr. Dhruv Gupta, a Ph.D. candidate in Christos Maravelias’ laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He was selected from a strong pool of 72 applicants. Mr. Gupta’s research focuses on optimization methods for online chemical production scheduling. He plans to attend the Process Systems Engineering conference (PSE 2018) in San Diego, CA. to present his work entitled “General Mixed-integer Programming State- Space Model for Online Scheduling”.
Congratulations to Mr. Gupta and thanks to all who applied.
