I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Twente (UT). The focus of my work was on the development of structured materials with applications in the field of energy, chemistry, and material sciences. After graduation, I worked as a research assistant in the open innovation hub for antimicrobial surfaces at the surface science research centre, University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. I continued my research career as a research assistant at the Chalmers University of Technology, working in the field of nanofabrication. I joined mesoscale chemical systems at UT as a researcher working in the field of energy, chemistry, material sciences, and health.
My previous and current research experiences are:
Energy: solar to electricity and chemical conversion - water splitting and carbon dioxide reduction reactions.
Chemistry: (i) Microreactor systems coupled with spectroscopic methods to monitor in-situ catalytic reactions. (ii) Synthesis of metal and metal oxide materials with applications in thermal catalysis, photocatalysis, and electrocatalysis.
Material Sciences: (i) Fabrication of water and oil repellent surfaces. (ii) Fabrication of plasmonic nanostructures for sensing. (iii) Structuring of metal oxide materials via electrospinning and 3D printing for energy and chemistry.
Health: (i) Structured materials with antibacterial properties. (ii) Microfluidic systems for encapsulation. (iii) Structured materials for tissue regeneration.
