Our focus

Learn more about our fundamental research to bridge chemical engineering and AI

Our goal is to prepare our students to become the next leaders in applying AI to academia and industry.

We are open to collaborations with industry and academia to bring our vision to life.

What is Process Intelligence Research?

We are a research group at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Our vision is the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and chemical engineering.

We will bridge chemical engineering and AI to deliver the next generation of intelligent knowledge and decision-making platforms for the chemical engineering field. At the heart of the successful transformation of chemical engineering with AI lies our fundamental and applied research in machine learning, data science, and process systems engineering.

Research themes

Process Systems Engineering (PSE) is a vital sub-discipline within Chemical Engineering, focusing on the holistic understanding and development of generalized Chemical Engineering models. By integrating knowledge from various fields within Chemical Engineering and the Physical Sciences, PSE employs a systems-thinking approach to abstract from the physical environment and precisely frame problems before model construction. These generalized models bridge practical engineering applications with theoretical conceptualization, ensuring that pertinent questions are prioritized from the outset.

Our research emphasizes the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in PSE, aiming to enhance model accuracy, efficiency, and predictive capabilities. By leveraging AI, we seek to develop intelligent systems that optimize processes, drive innovation, and achieve superior outcomes in Chemical Engineering.
