Our work on Cavity collapse near slot geometries has been just published!It deals with bubbles collapsing close to slot geometries. We learned interesting details on how the liquid jet is formed, with implications for many practical situations, such as cleaning complex objects. This is a collaboration with Ivo Peters and Elijah D. Andrews.

Our latest accepted paper shows how Process intensification connects scales and disciplines towards sustainability. This was a collaboration with Daria C. Boffito from Polytechnique Montreal, Canada.
This short article provides a short overview of my activities valorising scientific knowledge. Its title says a lot! Small bubbles and bubble bags: a scientific knowledge valorisation
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!
