Assistant professor Applied Engineering (B)CH


Research group

Intelligence in PRocesses, Advanced Catalysts and Solvents (iPRACS)


  • My expertise is situated in organic synthesis and structure determination, in the framework of structure-activity relationships, physical organic chemistry and catalysis. Techniques available in-house are single crystal diffraction and thermal techniques (differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and reaction calorimetry ) Research is currently situated in three projects: 1. Synthesis and characterisation of scaffolds for catalyst immobilisation 2. Design of a continuous crystallisation reactor 3. Depolymerisation of PUR for reuse of the recovered fractions


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
