Dr. Ming Pan is currently working as a research associate at the Computation Modelling Group in the University of Cambridge, UK. Before this, he had worked in the Centre for Process Integration in the University of Manchester, UK, for almost five years. Based on a strong background on Chemical Process System Engineering, he has developed a set of efficient mathematical approaches to deal with optimization problems. His professional interests focus on mathematical modeling and optimization in process industries. His projects include process integration and heat integration for chemical processes and energy industry. The optimization approaches proposed by Dr. Pan can deal with nonlinearity efficiently, and the nonlinear equations, such as logarithmic functions, exponential functions, power functions, high degree functions, and bilinear function, have been considered in his optimization research. He has published 32 papers (16 journal papers and 16 conference papers) and one book chapter. In his future work, he plans to extend his optimization approach on solving more Chemical Process Problems.
