Summary

i am a chemical Engineer with 5+ years of experience in Research and development in material science, with a focus on self-healing materials. currently finishing a phd at tu delft, i worked with and researched all key aspects concerning the correlation between structure, properties and processing of materials and Nanomaterials. an Expert in self-healing ceramic coatings for (aero)space Applications, i possess the ability to conduct Research autonomously and bring the conceptual idea to practice. Materials Science is my passion and i do this by being committed to deliver innovative solutions, through progressive engineering approaches. curious by nature, i combine Critical Thinking with a willingness to learn and develop new technical skills, often in an interdisciplinary context. i have shown myself to be self-motivated and determined in achieving my goals. i am keen to continue my Career in the industry. i am genuinely interested in project (management) and Research roles that combine engineering, consultancy, science and R&D. more specifically, my ambition is to perform and add value in a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary environment where i can use my strong analytical and experimental skills for the benefits of positive business outcomes. functional expertise: - Research and development - Materials Science - Chemical Engineering - thermal barrier coatings - self-healing ceramic coatings - high-temperature oxidation - encapsulation via soft-chemical processing routes (i.e. sol-gel, precipitation, colloidal, hydrothermal) - spark plasma sintering - material Characterization techniques (composition and microstructure) - Data Analysis - experiments design and optimization
