My research focuses on treatment technologies for PFAS-contaminated groundwater, stormwater, wastewater and landfill leachate. The technologies I am working with are electrochemical treatment, foam fractionation, biodegradation and electrocoagulation. In addition to these, I am also interested in other innovative methods for treating PFAS contaminated water. I do research both on laboratory and pilot scale and collaborate with several companies that experience issues with PFAS contamination of their water.
I have a double bachelor in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. My master was in Civil Engineering, with a focus on water treatment technology, at the TU Delft.
