Dr. Anthony P. Burgard

Supervisory Research Engineer, NETL


Dr. Burgard is the team lead of the Process Systems Engineering Research group and is the NETL PI for IDAES. His current research focuses on developing the process equipment models, flowsheets, and solution methodologies required for simulating and optimizing fossil-based power plants during both steady-state and dynamic operation. He was previously Associate Director of Computational Technologies at Genomatica, Inc., where his team routinely applied optimization-based approaches to guide the engineering of microbes for commodity chemical production via fermentation. Dr. Burgard earned his BS and PhD in Chemical Engineering from Penn State University.
