PhD Thesis

My thesis is titled Exploring Sources of Variability in Metal Organic Frameworks Through High Throughput Adsorption and Calorimetric Methods and was defended in 2018 in Aix-Marseille Université, France in front of the following jury:

  • Prof. Bogdan Kuchta (president of the jury)
  • Dr. Flor Siperstein (reviewer)
  • Dr. Rob Ameloot (reviewer)
  • Prof. Stefan Kaskel (examinator)
  • Dr. Philip Llewelyn (thesis director)

Other roles and collaborations

Member of the organisation board for the DocMOF 2018 conference in Raitenhaslach, Germany. This was the first PhD student organised symposium on Metal-Organic Frameworks and a massive success, with over 100 attendees from 70 institutions and 10 countries. I was also responsible for the event website.

In 2017 spent 6 weeks in the Center for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis in Leuven, Belgium, focusing on MOF synthesis and defect generation, with several prototypical materials such as UiO-66 and ZIF-8.
