Fadwa Eljack is a faculty in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Qatar University. She obtained her bachelor (1999) and PhD (2007) degrees from Auburn University, USA. Her research focuses mainly in the area of Process System Engineering that includes optimization and management of gas processing facilities, flare reduction, product design,  risk assessment and the inclusion of safety in design. Fadwa has served as the Director of the Gas Processing Center (GPC) at Qatar University (2008 – 2010). She has over 30 paper publications and is currently leading a number of research projects in collaboration with academic institutions and Qatari Industry, with over $3 million in funding.

Research Highlights

  • An Integrated Approach to the Simultaneous Design and Operation of Industrial Facilities for Abnormal Situation Management

    An Integrated Approach to the Simultaneous Design and Operation of Industrial Facilities for Abnormal Situation Management

    The project scope focuses at the development of a novel framework for optimal management of abnormal situation that occur in facilities based on simultaneous design and optimization of operation

  •  A Life-Cycle Integrated Approach to the Incorporation of Safety in the Design, Operation, and Optimization of Industrial Supply Chains in Qatar

    A Life-Cycle Integrated Approach to the Incorporation of Safety in the Design, Operation, and Optimization of Industrial Supply Chains in Qatar

    The project is aimed at developing systematic tools with Qatar-based applications for the new concept of LCA of safety (which is analogous to the environmental LCA) for the whole industrial supply chain

  • Computer Aided Product Design (CAPD) of Task-specific Ionic Liquid Solvents for CO2 Capture

    Computer Aided Product Design (CAPD) of Task-specific Ionic Liquid Solvents for CO2 Capture

    This work presents a systematic property based approach to design an optimal IL for the purpose of carbon capture. The significant contribution of the presented approach in this work is the introduction of disjunctive programming to identify optimal operating conditions of the process involved while solving the IL synthesis problem.
