I have received BSc in Chemical Engineering from The Western Paraná State University – Unioeste (2007), MSc in Chemical Engineering (title of the dissertation: Modelling and Simulation of Reactive Distillation Columns) from The Western Paraná State University – Unioeste (2010) and PhD in Chemical Engineering (thesis title: Determination of Ions Sorption Isotherms Using Poisson-Boltzmann Equation) from State University of Maringá (2014). I have successfully completed one year of post-doctoral research fellowship in The Western Paraná State University – Unioeste (2015). Since February 2015, I am Assistant Professor at Academic Department of Chemical Engineering (DAENQ) of Federal University of Technology - Paraná (UTFPR) Campus Francisco Beltrão – Paraná – Brazil. My research work focuses on process modelling and simulation.

The purpose of this book is to offer readers important topics on the modeling, simulation, and optimization of distillation processes. The book is divided into four main sections: the first section is introduction to the topic, the second presents work related to distillation process modeling, the third deals with the modeling of phase equilibrium, one of the most important steps of distillation process modeling, and the the fourth looks at the reactive distillation process, a process that has been applied successfully to a number of applications and has been revealed as a promising strategy for a number of recent challenges.
