Research

In my PhD, I have been working on the realization of reactive processes in liquid multiphase systems and have realized a successful proof of concept for the continuous hydroformylation of C12 alkenes in miniplant-scale microemulsions by applying new methodologies for system characterization and incorporating dynamic process models and optimization. Besides the continuation of research on the implementation of homogeneous catalysts in liquid multiphase systems, further focal points are the intensification of thermal separation processes by means of rotating packing apparatuses (RPB) as well as the impact and avoidance of fluid dynamic phenomena, especially foaming, on the process operation. Other focal points include new reactor concepts for heterogeneous catalysis (OCM, H2->NH3) as well as process automation and the integration of advanced optimization methods into real plant operation.

Responsible for the Intensified Processes research cluster.
