I am a Programme Director of the Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) Energy & Process Technology and an associate professor in the Department of Thermal and Fluid Engineering. I am responsible for the research line on the Energy Efficient Processes with a focus on multidisciplinary and inter-sectoral investigations towards the optimized use of renewable energy. I received my Ph.D. degree in December 2010 at the University of Twente on the work “Vibro-acoustical instabilities induced by combustion dynamics in gas turbine combustors”.
