The PSOR Lab is happy to announce that Robert Gottlieb has joined as a new PhD student. Welcome!
Congratulations to Matt Wilhelm on the recently published paper in Optimization Methods & Software. This paper discusses the groundbreaking EAGO software for deterministic global optimization written in the Julia programming language. https://doi.org/10.1080/10556788.2020.1786566
The PSOR Lab will be presenting three papers at the AIChE Annual Meeting 2019 in Orlando, FL held on Nov 17-22.

Congratulations to Matt Wilhelm and former NSF REU student Anne Le (now at UMass Amherst) on the recently accepted publication in AIChE Journal. This work develops a new approach to bounding solutions of parametric initial value problems for guaranteed global solution of dynamic optimization problems. This article is part of the AIChE Futures Issue by invitation. https://doi.org/10.1002/aic.16836
PSOR Lab and collaborators at UConn recently published an article on next-generation sensor technology for wastewater treatment systems in the journal Water Research. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.watres.2019.114971
Dr. Stuber will be speaking at the European Conference on Operational Research (EURO2019) in Dublin on June 24, 2019 . He will discuss EAGO.jl in the MC-49 session in the Software for Optimization stream.
Members of the PSOR Lab recently published the article “Dexamethasone Increases Cisplatin-Loaded Nanocarrier Delivery and Efficacy in Metastatic Breast Cancer by Normalizing the Tumor Microenvironment” in the journal ACS Nano in collaboration with our international consortium on cancer research. https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsnano.8b07865
Members of the PSOR Lab recently published the article “Semi-infinite programming for global guarantees of robust fault detection and isolation in safety-critical systems” in the journal Computers & Chemical Engineering.
