Welcome to my Amsterdam webspace!
I head the Heterogeneous Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry group at the UvA. We discover new catalysts and materials for bulk chemicals and sustainable energy applications. Check out our short film on YouTube.
I also have two companies: Sorbisense A/S (Denmark) makes passive samplers for soil and groundwater, and Yellow Diesel BV (Netherlands) designs catalysts and processes for biodiesel manufacturing and biomass conversion.
Here are links to my cv, publications (html,
pdf), linkedin profile and catalysis textbook.
Those of you interested in improving your scientific writing skills, see the 'Write it Right' workshops, given by myself and Dr. Christopher Lowe.
