About Me

Bart Homan received his BSc degree in Chemical Engineering & Biochemical Engineering (2010) and his MSc degree in Molecular Engineering (2012) from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. After receiving his MSc degree he went on to work at Dr Ten B.V. in research and development of various products, most notably the Seasalt battery. In 2014 he expanded his research beyond the chemical aspect of batteries, and started working towards a PhD degree in the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) group at the University of Twente.

He received his PhD degree from the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands in 2020. His PhD research focussed on the integration of batteries in (smart)microgrids, but also includes the chemical and practical aspects of battery design. His research was done in the Energy Group, a multidisciplinary team consisting of members of the CAES and Discrete Mathematics and Mathematical Programming (DMMP) groups and in close collaboration with Dr Ten B.V.
