Dr Ruth Misener is a Lecturer (USA equivalent Assistant Professor) in the Computational Optimisation Group of the Quantitative Analysis and Decision Science Section. Foundations of her research are in numerical optimisation algorithms and computational software frameworks; current applications include bioprocess optimisation under uncertainty and petrochemical process network design and operations.
Ruth concurrently holds a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship (2012–2017) in association with the Centre for Process Systems Engineering and the Biological Systems Engineering Laboratory. She received an SB from MIT (2007), MA from Princeton University (2009), and a PhD from Princeton University (2012). Ruth has co-authored several publicly-available software tools for global optimisation including: APOGEE (pooling); GloMIQO (MIQCQP); ANTIGONE (MINLP).
