Biography

Dr. Marcelo Castier teaches courses on thermodynamics, numerical methods, separation processes, and process design. His research focuses on the development and application of thermodynamic models, new algorithms for computing thermodynamic equilibrium, energy integration, and applications of thermodynamics to chemical process safety. Dr. Castier's interest in advanced computational applications has led to the development of Thermath, a software for the automatic implementation of complex thermodynamic models. He is also the author of XSEOS, a freely available educational software for Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics. As leader or participant of several national and international collaboration groups, Dr. Castier's current research interests are: Thermodynamic models for confined fluids: adsorption Applications of thermodynamics to process safety Equations of state for non-electrolyte and electrolyte systems Energy integration in chemical processes Reactive distillation Development of educational software (download page of the XSEOS package) Education Doctor of Philosophy (Lic. Tech.), The Technical University of Denmark, 1988 Master of Science, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, 1985 Diploma in Chemical Engineering, Cum Laude, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, 1981 Experience 2010-present Professor, Texas A&M University at Qatar, Doha, Qatar 2006- 2010 Associate Professor, United Arab Emirates University, UAE. 1999 Visiting Scholar, University of Vigo, 1996 Visiting Scholar, University of Delaware 1988-2006 Associate Professor, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Honors Fulbright Senior Visiting Scholar, University of Delaware, 2006 Fellow of the “Scientists of Our State” program, in three consecutive two-year periods. Granted by the State of Rio de Janeiro Science Foundation (FAPERJ) to few distinguished researchers working in the State, 2000-2006.
