Biographical Info

Marianthi Ierapetritou joined the Rutgers faculty in 1998 and was elected chair of the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Department in 2013.  Her research interests focus on process operations, design, and synthesis of flexible manufacturing systems, modeling of reactive flow processes, and metabolic engineering.

She received the Outstanding Engineering Faculty Award in 2012, the Rutgers Board of Trustees Research Fellowship for Scholarly Excellence in 2004, and the prestigious NSF CAREER award in 2000.  She is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and an active participant in the scientific advising committees of the Engineering Specific Career Advisory Problem-solving Environment (ESCAPE). She has been active in the Computing and Systems Technology (CAST) division of AIChE as a division vice chair and area 10A program coordinator. She is also an elected trustee of Computer Aids in Chemical Engineering (CACHE), currently serving as vice president.

Ierapetritou received her PhD in 1995 from the Imperial College, London, and completed post-doctoral research at Princeton University.
