Technical Support

Together with Oscar Kerkenaar, Bart van der Linden, Kevin Mouthaan and Willy Rook, I am one of the 5 technicians of the section Catalysis Engineering (CE).

It is my job to make sure the scientists (PhD-students, postdocs and Msc-and Bsc-students) can do top research. Advice is not only given on how to build, construct or modify setups. As a research assistant I will go into detail to perform the best experiments.

The technicians also have a lot of contact with the TU Delft department workshop (Demo), the facilities (FMVG), LMS, the Department Safety Officer (DSO) and with other technicians in the DCT-building.

The following setups are my direct responsibility:

  • Multitrack / TAP
  • Spectroscopy (FTIR, Raman, UV)
  • TGA
  • Gas-Chromatography
  • TPR /TPD /TPO temperature programmed technique
  • Vacuum-technique
  • Mass-spectrometry


With most of the other setups I can also help (and otherwise one of the other technicians can help).

Area Supervision

  • Deputy Area supervisor of the Multirackzaal and Spectroscopy Lab.


Teaching Activities

  • Assistant LO practicum and Msc / Bsc Projects


Followed Courses

  • Summerschool Spectrocat Caen (2010)
  • Safe working with gascylinders (2004)
  • FTIR introductie cursus (2003)
  • Swagelok Tubing Course (1999)


Research Activities

Several research projects have been done in the field of spectroscopy and mass-spectrometry. This leads as a co-author to the latest publications.
