Dr. Khan's research interests are in developing numerical methods for efficient simulation, sensitivity analysis, optimization, and control of chemical process systems that are nonconvex, nonsmooth, or dynamic. Approaches followed include automatic differentiation and adjoint sensitivity analysis. He has made fundamental theoretical contributions to the sensitivity analysis of nonsmooth dynamic systems, and has developed some of the first numerical methods for computing this sensitivity information.
