About me

I was born and raised in the very south of the Netherlands near to Maastricht. I have successfully completed my BSc and MSc in Chemical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology. During my MSc program I have decided to follow the Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry track. Thereafter, I started as a PhD candidate as an ARC CBBC member in the Inorganic Materials and Catalysis (IMC) group at the TU/e.

About my research

My research project is about studying the influence of the support on the active phase formation in heterogeneous catalysts. To study the process of catalyst preparation, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and in particular Electron Tomography (ET) will be used in different modes. The imaging power of different TEM modes in combination with a proper image processing and analysis workflow should allow for each individual step in the preparation to be visualized and quantified with descriptors. A huge challenge lies within translating the small-scale information into the bulk.
