I did my PhD at University of Twente, group of Soft matter, Fuidics and Interfaces (SFI), on developing a novel type of membrane called "slippery liquid-infused membranes" for oily wastewater (produced water) treatment. This work consisted of both fundamental and applied studies. Currently, I'm an assistant professor (tenure track) at TU/Delft, department of Process and Energy. My new research work is focused on developing fully sustainable membranes for separation applications as well as novel separation-sensing devices.
My research interests are:
- Developing novel membranes for gas separation applications and wastewater treatment
- Microfluidic design and experiments
- Interface science and wetting properties of surfaces
- Two phase flow and immiscible displacement in porous media
- Acoustophoresis and electrophoresis of oil droplets in surfactant solutions
