Research Profile

Jacques Dam is a Full Professor in the section Energy Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Chair of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Systems. In this capacity, he works on the development of LNG systems over the entire upstream and downstream LNG chain. His expertise covers functions, differential equations, computational fluid dynamics and simulation, numerical analysis, simulation and modeling and engineering thermodynamics.

Academic Background

Jacques Dam obtained his PhD in Applied Physics from the Technical University of Delft, for the discovery, development and deployment of an impregnated, superconducting whole body MRI system. Since 1989, he has been building up a track record in designing and developing cryogenic, cooling and vacuum systems. In addition to his work at TU/e, Jacques is lector Sustainable LNG Technology at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. In this capacity he is concerned with the development of sustainable LNG technologies and initiating collaboration programs between the Hanze University and the TU/e. Jacques has worked at the French-Dutch design team of the superconducting AGOR cyclotron (currently operational at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen), at Stirling cryogenics, ESA, Thales cryogenics, and Stork Inoteq for the development of dedicated cryogenic systems for the LNG industry. In 2011, he became the director of science at the LNG TR&D Foundation and was appointed in 2012 as senior scientist at the Energy Valley Foundation for the development of a Dutch LNG fuel supply chain.
