Function: PhD student
I am working on a PhD thesis, funded by the FWO, in the field of liquid chromatography. My promoters are Gert Desmet and Ken Broeckhoven. I will teach some courses.
I am currently working on the development of an automatic read-out algorithm for liquid chromatography.
My PhD thesis aims at making a comprehensive study of the dependency of the radial diffusion coefficient (Drad) on retention equilibrium, liquid velocity and the diffusion coefficient in- and outside the particles. This will be done experimentally and with the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
