I leverage fundamental knowledge on physical-chemistry and engineering to study complex multi-phasic reaction systems and create novel synthetic catalytic materials for the sustainable production of renewable energies and chemicals.

 

By Integrating molecular -sensing and -actuation mechanisms directly on conventional catalysts my group is paving the way for autonomous catalytic reaction processes, allowing us to develop the next generation of process-intensive, modular, and robust reactors for chemicals production, energy conversion, and environmental remediation.

Research profiles

I am very passionate about education and mentorship, which fits perfectly with the University of Twente long-standing track on high quality education. I teach in reaction kinetics and advanced catalysis in the BSc and MSc programs, respectively. Here, I have the opportunity to connect the research that my group does on catalysis and chemical reaction kinetics with our education, which help me to connect the next generation of chemical engineers and research scientists with the frontier research that we do in the group.
