About Fateme Rezaei

Dr. Fateme Razaei is an Associate Professor in the department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Missouri S&T. She received her B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from Shiraz University and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Technology from Lulea University of Technology and in Chemical Engineering from Monash University.

Dr. Razaei conducts cutting edge research in Chemical Engineering fields with the intent to forge strong international links, produce further patent applications and publications in high level scientific journals. Her specialties include Gas Separation, Adsorption, CO2 Capture, Numerical Modeling and Simulation, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Process Design and Optimization, Transport Phenomena, and Materials Synthesis and Characterization.

Dr. Razaei's Research Statement: Our research focus broadly lies at the interface of chemical, materials science and environmental engineering, where the general goal of our work is to develop advanced materials and processes for clean energy and sustainable chemical processes. In particular, our research relates to fundamental and applied aspects of adsorption, separations, purification and reaction. The research activities include: 1) structured adsorbents in gas separation processes; 2) modeling and simulation of cyclic separation processes such as PSA, TSA, VSA; 3) development of hybrid materials for separation, purification and reaction applications; 4) liquid phase adsorptive separation and purification.

Examples of current projects include: 1) monolithic adsorbents for CO2 capture, 2) adsorptive separation of light hydrocarbons, 3) advanced technologies for sour gas removal (SOx, NOx, H2S), 4) development of in-situ separation-reaction processes.
