I am associate professor at the University of Twente (UT) and part-time adjunct professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in the School of Chemistry and Materials Science, P.R. China, as well as China country coordinator for the University of Twente.
I am a fellow and board member of the European Ceramic Society and an editor of the Journal of the European Ceramic Society.
Design of inorganic membranes and study of microstructure and transport properties.
Important aspects are knowledge and control of the microstructure (on the nanometer scale) during fabrication in order to obtain materials and devices with special, unique and reproducible properties. Details are given on the Inorganic Membranes website
Experience is on synthesis and consolidation methods for the fabrication of ceramic membranes, and on several membrane characterization techniques.
