Key expertises

Heterogeneous catalysis, catalyst preparation

About me

I was born and raised in Borne, which is a small village in Overijssel. I received my BSc degree in Chemistry and my MSc degree in Science and Business Management at Utrecht University. At the beginning of 2021, I started my PhD at Utrecht University.

About my research

In this project we will explore new approaches to design and assemble 3D porous metal oxide nanostructures, with high phase and surface purity and well defined pore structure. These serve as supports for model catalysts that will be tested to provide insight on the role of the support, which is useful to optimize existing catalysts (improving molecular and energy efficiency) and will also serve as a base for the design and preparation for catalyst to realise new sustainable fuels and chemicals.
