Reza Research Group

Welcome To Reza Research Group At Florida Tech

Our research interests include waste-to-energy-and-materials, biofuel, advanced separations, and process modelling and simulations. We apply fundamentals of chemical engineering to solve real-world problems. Our research involves molecular-level simulation, bench-scale proof-of-concept, lab-scale demonstration, and techno-economic assessment. Current research efforts include advanced biorefinery feedstock preparation, production of food-water-energy from municipal solid waste, depolymerization of plastic wastes to value-added products, and separation of BTX from naphtha. Our current projects are funded by US Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Science Foundation (NSF), US Agency for International Aid (USAID), American Chemical Society (ACS), and Sugarbush Foundation. Please follow Funding Page to learn more about the research funding. In our group, we promote diversity by involving students from various cultures, races, gender. Our group is a harmony of undergraduate and graduate students from multiple disciplines, where we practice teamwork, project management, time management, technical writing, and technical presentations. Please follow People page to read about our group members and follow publications page for the recent articles.

Please contact Dr. Reza for additional information on group’s research, collaborations, and undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral research opportunities.
