Short CV/Education and training

  • 1999 – 2004
    Research scientist and later senior scientist at the Philips Natuurkundig Laboratorium in Eindhoven (the Netherlands) on the preparation and mechanical, optical and electrical properties of sol-gel prepared thin films

  • 2004 – 2009
    Assistant professor in the department of Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis. Research field: the synthesis and characterisation of nanocomposite materials, mostly metal(oxide) nanoparticles in porous matrices, for applications in heterogeneous catalysis

  • 2006 – 2007
    received a Vidi grant and additional grants (NWO-ACTS, Casimir, EOS) to start building up a research line on nanostructured materials for hydrogen storage, investigating the impact of nanosizing and confinement on metal hydrides, alanates and boronates

  • Since 2009
    Promoted Associate Professor. Building on US-DOE, NWO-ECHO, and valorisation grants extending my research towards supported metal hydrides also for catalysis and battery applications, nanostructured materials for solar fuels, and the conversion of hydrogen and CO(2) into alcohols
