General introduction

In 2012, I graduated in Bioengineering Science with a specialization in Chemistry and bio industry. I spent one year travelling in Canada and Central America and then started to work for an oleochemical company in 2013, first in quality then in research and development. After 5 years in the chemical industry, I have started a PhD at VUB under supervision of Prof. Wim De Malsche.


Microfluidic approaches offer unique opportunities to produce functional microparticles. In this project, reactors are developed wherein functional organic layers can be applied on microparticles using active and passive particle handling techniques.
