Prof. Rob Lammertink
Rob Lammertink (1972) received his PhD (2000) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Twente. He subsequently started a postdoctoral project at the California Institute of Technology. At the beginning of 2004, he was appointed as assistant professor in the Membrane Technology Group. In this group, he initiated a research cluster related to microstructured interfaces for membrane applications. This cluster was extended into fields of microreactor technology and microfluidics. As of April 2010 he is heading the Soft matter, Fluidics and Interfaces group. The research focuses on interfacial aspects in relation to mass and heat transport. Within MCEC, the research will focus microscopic observations of species transport near catalyst surfaces for biomass conversions. For this, microfluidic platforms will be designed that allow observations within the boundary layer.
