Dr. Cremaschi received her Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from Purdue University in December, 2006. During her Ph.D., she worked as a research assistant at the NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training in Advanced Life Support (ALS/NSCORT), and her work focused on developing novel algorithms for process synthesis and design optimization. Following her graduation, she served as a postdoctoral research associate and assistant research scientist in e-Enterprise Center of Discovery Park, Purdue University before joining The Department of Chemical Engineering as assistant professor in the University of Tulsa.  Her current research focuses on developing agent based modeling and simulation approaches to cancer care engineering and energy system analysis.
