Function: PhD student
Obtained a Master’s degree in applied chemical engineering and chemical and materials engineering and conducted a master thesis at the Department of Chemical Engineering on the topic of polymer monoliths. Currently conducting a PhD research funded by IWT Flanders.
The main focus of the study is the development of a microfluidic platform for ion-exchange chromatography. This entails the miniaturization and integration of three key elements: separation, ion-suppression and detection. Important elements of the work are microfabrication and optimization of design towards high efficiency separations.
