Function: Doctoral researcher (IWT funded)
I’m currently pursuing a PhD, focused on the design and fabrication of micro- and millidevices with integrated micro- or mesoporous materials, funded by the Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology Flanders (IWT).
Novel microporous materials such as Metal-organic frameworks (MOF) are very promising for the separation of various mixtures by means of adsorption. By creating thin coatings and membranes of MOF in-situ in small microchannels the mass- and heat transfer can be increased to improve the separation efficiency.
