Doctoral Candidate

Senan Amireh

Chemical Engineering and Chemistry


Senan Amireh is a PhD candidate at Eindhoven University of Technology. He works on the electrochemical reduction of CO2 to ethylene, aiming to manufacture advanced gas diffusion electrodes with controlled microstructure and hydrophobicity. His research includes optimizing electrochemical reactor designs employing gas diffusion electrodes with a focus on achieving long operation times and high product selectivity.


Senan Amireh studied Chemical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology where he was awarded the Amandus H. Lundqvist and Holland Scholarships. He obtained his master’s degree cum laude in 2022 with a specialization in electrochemical engineering. In his master's research, he investigated the interaction between power electronics and the efficiency of alkaline water electrolysis under the supervision of dr. Thijs de Groot and dr. Dongsheng Yang. In August 2022, Senan began his PhD research under the supervision of dr. Antoni Forner-Cuenca where he will work on the next-generation gas diffusion electrodes for CO2 electrochemical reduction to ethylene.
