Prof. Alexander Mitsos, Ph.D. studied Chemical Engineering at University of Karlsruhe (today Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and obtained his PhD in the field of Process Systems Engineering under supervision of Prof. Paul I. Barton in the Chemical Engineering Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, USA. After working as a junior research group leader at the Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) in 2008, he became an assistant professor in Mechanical Engineering at MIT in 2009 where he focused on energy systems. Since September 2012 he has been a full professor and director at the Institute of Process Systems Engineering at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University. Since 2017 he has also been a director at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Energy Systems Engineering (IEK-10) at Forschungszentrum Jülich. His research interests are the optimal design and operation of chemical and energy systems, as well as the development of methods and algorithms for deterministic global optimization. He is one of the two founding directors of the Helmholtz School for Data Science in Life, Earth and Energy (HDS-LEE) and also a director of the JARA Center for Simulation and Data Sciences (JARA-CSD).
