General introduction

In 2016, I finished my Master’s degree in Bio-engineering Sciences at the VUB, specializing in chemical biotechnology. Currently, I am performing the research for my PhD in the group of Prof. Joeri Denayer.


The research for my PhD project is focused around the development of novel adsorption process for efficient recovery of chemicals produced from renewable resources. In particular the recovery and purification of 1-butanol and isobutanol via fermentation is envisaged.
