Nikolay Kosinov

Tenure Track Assistant Professor
Eindhoven University of Technology

I studied chemistry at Novosibirsk State University (Russian Federation) where I obtained my MSc degree in 2010. From 2008 until 2010, I was a research assistant at the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis in Novosibirsk, where I developed catalytic systems for selective hydrogenation of haloaromatic compounds. I then moved to Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherlands) to perform PhD research into the development and detailed characterization of novel zeolite membranes for gas and liquid separation. In 2014, I obtained my PhD under supervision of professors Emiel Hensen (TU/e) and Freek Kapteijn (TU Delft).

From 2014 until 2017, I performed postdoctoral research in the Inorganic Materials Chemistry research group at TU/e. In 2017 I continued with a postdoctoral research at TU Delft in the Inorganic Systems Engineering group. In April 2018 I was appointed as assistant professor at the Inorganic Materials Chemistry research group at TU/e.

My research is aimed at the synthesis, advanced characterization and applications of novel microporous catalytic materials. The areas of interest involve unconventional transformations of natural gas (methane) and CO2 to liquid fuels and chemicals.
