Science-Based Data Analytics for Molecular-to-Systems Engineering

Environmental and sustainability global challenges are “wickedly” complex. Identifying impactful solutions for these challenges often requires concerted research efforts that span molecular, material, device, systems, andinfrastructure length-scales and transcend disciplines.

In this talk, we argue predictive multi-scale mathematical models, often grounded in scientific theories, provide principled approaches to realize molecular-to-systems engineering. But the selection, training, and validation of said models in practice are often more of an art than a science, despite the recent advances (and hype?) in data science and machine learning. In this talk, we explore systematic, principled approaches to building science-based mathematical models using examples from chemical engineering.
