Within ARC CBBC, I wish to accomplish…

Within the consortium the leaders in materials science research, both from universities and industry, work together in multi- and interdisciplinary teams towards important fundamental, industrial and societal challenges in catalysis, energy and materials chemistry. With my background and experience I feel confident I will be able to contribute greatly towards the fundamental understanding of materials, reactions and processes and as such enable the rational design of more sustainable ones.

In my scientific career, I am most proud of…

Development of advanced X-ray spectroscopy methods and operando instrumentation as tools in catalysis, energy and materials research; the most recent and perhaps most interesting development is a lab-based instrument allowing X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopy to be performed in the lab rather than at a synchrotron only.
