Since 2009, I have been professor of chemical engineering and thermodynamics at the University of Applied Sciences in Mannheim. My previous employment includes working in chemical process development at a major pharmaceutical company.

In my current role, I use COMSOL Multiphysics simulations for research and consulting, with a focus on solving process and chemical industry sector problems. These consultancy projects often include a research component as well as an application that is related to the project at hand. The process can involve answering questions that range from “What is the current status for this application in scientific literature?” to “What is the central problem?”

My goal is to be involved in projects at an early stage in order to gain a better understanding of the problem and provide solutions. In addition to simulation research, I also offer experimental treatments of problems.

Areas of Expertise

My expertise is in the following areas:

  • Chemical engineering
  • Optimization of chemical reactors and processes
  • Microreactors
  • Simulation of multiphase processes and reactions
  • Bioreactors
  • Aerification
  • Optimization of mixing processes
  • Troubleshooting of production processes
  • Heat transfer optimization
  • CFD
  • Intensification of heat and mass transfer
  • Analysis of galenic production processes
  • Particle technology and nanoparticles

This combination of long-term industrial expertise, chemical and technical knowledge, and a pragmatic approach to process optimization ensures targeted and successful solutions to applications and problems.
