We have finally published in two parts the results of our Lorentz Center event in 2019: Process Intensification education contributes to sustainable development goals (Part 1 and Part 2). It was the result of a collaboration of more than 30 experts from all over the world!
I signed up as expert and member of the Dutch Engineering Society KIVI. I hope to help with my expertise in ultrasonic cleaning to this great initiative.
It is a great honour to have been admitted to the Global Young Academy! I look forward to advance the role of science in creating a better world.
Last Sunday morning, the radio program Fris!, from NPO Radio 1 interviewed me on the phone. They wanted to know more about what is in my needle-free research plans that can help the wider population. You can hear it (in Dutch), from minute 5, on the transmission of Fris!

The fear of injections draws the attention of the popular RTL EditieNL news in an interview made to the BuBble-Gun team. You can see it from min ~8 here, while an accompanying article can be read here.
The Journal of Applied Physics has just published our latest results as Microfluidics control the ballistic energy of thermocavitation liquid jets for needle-free injections. We provide important elements for the design of energy-efficient needle-free jet injectors based on microfluidic thermocavitation, and is the result of a collaboration of the University of Twente and the MIT.
One of the most renowned and respected journals in The Netherlands has published in print and online, on the special Saturday’s edition, an interview about my BuBble Gun (needle-free injection) project, as well as the future I see under our skin. It is in Dutch, but has some videos and nice graphics.
I am very proud to see the last paper from my first PhD student being published in such a relevant journal. Influence of Bubbles on the Energy Conversion Efficiency of Electrochemical Reactors Electrochemical reactions often produce gas form bubbles at the reaction site. We are studying the influences on energy and mass transfer by gas bubbles evolving […]
This month has been full with lots of great developments (but also plenty of work). Diana van der Ven and Jelle Schoppink have joined the ERC team that will work in the BuBble Gun project: welcome! See their short biosketch in the Team webpage. We also received the visit of high school students Berkan Yildiz […]
The Euraxess website has posted a video/interview with some tips (with English subtitles) about my experiences in applying for ERC grants.
