Asfaw is a postdoctoral research fellow in process engineering at Stellenbosch University. He obtained BSc and MSc in Chemical Engineering from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia and PhD in chemical and process engineering from Univesitat Rovira i Virgili, Spain.
His primary research interests include process modelling, simulation and optimization of complex chemical (biochemical) processes and systems. He is also interested in developing techniques for integrating process simulation and optimization for designing sustainable bio-refineries and incorporating environmental impact and product life cycle assessment into the standard heuristics of conceptual process design.
