Synthetic hollow fiber membranes separate components from liquid or gaseous mixtures. By designing membrane structures and combining materials, tailored separation characteristics evolve. The development of hollow fiber membranes for diverse applications is the research focus of Hannah Roth.

Hannah completed her studies in Chemical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in 2014. She earned her doctoral degree in Chemical Engineering with summa cum laude honors in 2021. Her doctoral research was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Matthias Wessling. Hannah gained valuable industry experience as a Sales Director and Software Developer at FURTHRresearch, a spin-off company promoting the research data management software, FURTHRmind. Afterwards, she led the research group “Membrane Fabrication and Molecular Transport” at RWTH Aachen University at the Chair of Chemical Process Engineering from 2021-2022.

In 2023, Hannah was appointed as an Assistant Professor at the Membrane Science and Technology Cluster at the University of Twente. In this role, she continues her contributions to cutting-edge research and development in the field of hollow fiber membranes.
