Chair Niels Deen - EnergyDays - 27 October 2016
I am a full professor and head of the Multiphase and Reactive Flows group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. From 1998 until 2001 I did my PhD studies with Prof. B.H. Hjertager at the Aalborg University Esbjerg. From 2001 until 2010, I worked as an assistant professor at the University of Twente in The Netherlands. From 2010 until 2015, I worked as an associate professor in the Multiphase Reactors Group at the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. In 2010 I received an Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) to work on micro-structured bubble column reactors. My research is concerned with the development of computational and experimental techniques for the study of multiphase reactors. This includes multi-scale modeling of bubble column reactors and gas-liquid-solid contacting in (spout) fluidized beds.
