We are a materials chemistry group that thrives on crossing traditional subject boundaries.
As part of the KU Leuven Center for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis and Department of Microbial and Molecular Systems, we study different flavors of porous matter. Our research is focused on enabling applications based on these materials through a fundamental understanding of their formation processes and properties. In doing so, we aim to build bridges between the established use of porous materials, as adsorbents and catalysts, and the worlds of microelectronics, diagnostics and additive manufacturing.
Our labs are located in the state-of-the-art Leuven Chem&Tech and NanoCenter facilities, completed in 2015.
