About Me

I received my master in Chemical Engineering - Molecules and Materials Engineering from the University of Twente in 2016. Subsequently, in October 2016 I started my PhD in the Films in Fluids research group of Nieck Benes.

Research

My research focuses on the development of nanofiltration membranes which can be used under extreme industrial conditions. Both solvent resistant nanofiltration and aqueous filtrations under extreme pH conditions are aimed for by developing membranes with unprecedented stability, higher flux and higher selectivity.

New membrane chemistries are introduced, while preparing the membranes via interfacial polymerization. Via in-situ/operando characterization methods direct insights can be obtained about the membrane properties under the extreme operating conditions. This knowledge is then used to base new membrane material design on.
