Dr. Kroenlein's work focuses on applying informatics techniques to challenges in thermophysical and thermochemical properties of well-defined chemical systems, with a particular emphasis on applying good software engineering practice to scientific software and data handling. Dr. Kroenlein leads the Thermodynamics Research Center, a group whose mission it is to provide industry and academia with critically evaluated property data derived from comprehensive collections of experimental results from the scientific literature. By adopting strongly data-driven methodologies, robust assignment of uncertainties and maintaining the network of provenance on all recommendations, TRC provides industrial and academic partners the information they need to understand in a quantifiable way how reliable a property value is.
