Research

Despite the widespread use of crystallization in large scale mixed devices, the influence of flow and shear on nucleation and crystallization processes is poorly understood.  In the present project, a constant shear microfluidic device is developed, allow for in-situ monitoring of crystallization of proteins and APIs. The research is conducted in collaboration with Prof. Dominique Maes (promotor) and prof. Johan Stiens (co-promotor).
