About Me

In October 2014, I finished my master Chemical Engineering - Molecules and Materials Engineering at the University of Twente. In November 2014 I started my PhD research in the group Films in Fluids with Prof.dr.ir. N.E.Benes. 

The PhD project involves the further development and use of characterization techniques, such as spectroscopic ellipsometry, quartz crystal microbalance and broadband dielectric relaxation spectroscopy, to obtain a better fundamental understanding of solvent transport/sorption through thin (hybrid) polymer films.

Projects

In-situ characterisationof SRNF membranes

The penetrant-induced swelling of membranes has dramatic negative effects on their separation performance. These effects are particularly strong in the case of very thin films. The aim of this research is to understand the fundamentals underlying the performance of membranes in order to establish chemistry-structure-performance relations that aid membrane materials design optimized for SRNF.
