Dr. Antonio Flores-Tlacuahuac is currently a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and member of the energy and climatic change research group at ITESM. He received a B.Sc. degree from Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (1985) and PhD degree from Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine (1994), both in Chemical Engineering. He has served as consultant for several polymer and pharmaceutical companies.
His research interests are in the areas of mathematical modeling, simulation, optimization and control of processing systems with emphasis in new alternative energies and polymerization systems. He is member of the Mexican National Research System (Level 2) and member of the Mexican Sciences Academy. He has graduated around 20 MSc and 5 PhD students and published around 90 papers in international research journal. He is currently member of the Editorial Board of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research (a journal published by the American Chemical Society) and also co-Editor of the Latin-American Applied Research Journal.
Prof. Flores-Tlacuahuac has taken two sabbatical leaves at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Carnegie-Mellon University and three research summers at the Dynamic and Control group of the Technical University of Berlin. He has been visiting Professor at Carnegie-Mellon University and maintains active research collaborations with researchers from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Carnegie-Mellon University, Cornell University, University of California at Berkeley, University of Waterloo (Canada), University of Bradford (UK) and Technical University of Berlin.
