General introduction

Jelle De Vos (born 1988) is a senior postdoctoral researcher working at the Department of Chemical Engineering (Vrije Universiteit Brussel). He studied Chemistry at Ghent University and obtained his Master’s degree in 2012. In the same year he started to work as a doctoral researcher in the Bio-Analytical Separation Science group (VUB). Jelle conducted research on advancing the performance limits of ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) technology and developing a novel solvent-assisted modulation strategy for multidimensional separations. His PhD thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr. Sebastiaan Eeltink and Prof. Dr. ir. Gert Desmet. He obtained his PhD in Engineering Sciences in 2016. Following his PhD studies he was selected for an FWO Postdoctoral Fellowship, which got extended in 2019. His research is focusing on the development of microfluidic chip technology to establish spatial three-dimensional liquid chromatography as a radically new concept in separation sciences. He is supervision a team of two PhD students (ir. Thomas Themelis and ir. Ali Amini) who are working on the same project.

He performed an international research stay at the Institute of Bioprocess Science and Engineering at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna (Austria) in 2019-2020 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Alois Jungbauer. His research focused on fundamentals and applications of biopharmaceutical processing and analytics.
