Workshop SuBiCat 4rd Annual Workshop

Process Design

Dr Fausto Gallucci

Fausto Gallucci was born in Crotone (Italy), on November 7th, 1974. I have got a degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Calabria on April 4th 2001 and a PhD in Chemical Engineering at the same university. My research interest is the interaction ofheterogeneous catalysis, transport phenomena, and fluid mechanics in novel multifunctional reactors. In particular the process intensification of interesting processes such as methanol production, Fisher-Tropsch reaction, hydrogen production by reforming/dehydrogenation reactions are my main interests. I gained a full understanding of gas separation systems, methanol synthesis from carbon dioxide and hydrogen carried out in zeolite membrane reactors, membrane reaction systems: partial oxidation, steam reforming, water gas shift, carried out in novel membrane reactors. Fluidized bed MR, CLC systems... I already had scientific co-operations with the Research Institute on Membranes and Modelling of Chemical Reactors and with the Research Institute on Membrane Technology in Italy, with the GKSS Research Institute in Germany and the University of Twente.

Computational Organometallic Chemistry and Theoretical Methods in Homogeneous Catalysis

Dr Marc-Etienne Moret

Marc-Etienne Moret (Lausanne (Switzerland), 18-03-1982) obtained his master’s degree in chemistry from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2005. During his undergraduate time at EPFL he acquired research experience in organometallic synthesis (Prof. Paul Dyson) and computational chemistry (Prof. Ursula Rothlisberger). Marc-Etienne moved to the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETHZ) where he obtained his PhD in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. Peter Chen for a thesis focusing on the study of reaction mechanisms in organoplatinum chemistry by mass spectrometric methods, as well as on platinum-copper heterobimetallic compounds and their reactions. Following his graduation, Marc-Etienne moved to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) for two-years of postdoctoral research in the group of Prof. Jonas C. Peters on the activation of N2 by synthetic iron complexes, for which he was awarded a fellowship for prospective researchers and a fellowship for advanced researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). Marc- Etienne then accepted a position as assistant professor in the Organic Chemistry and Catalysis group at the University of Utrecht starting in August 2012 and started on a 5-years tenure-track in August 2013.

QM-MM Method in Catalyst Design

Dr Ivo Filot

Ivo Filot is a theoretical chemist originating from the Netherlands. He finished his Ph.D. in 2015 at the Eindhoven University of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Emiel Hensen and Prof. Rutger van Santen. His research involves the elucidation of the complex Fischer-Tropsch reaction mechanism employing density functional theory and microkinetic modeling. Currently, he is employed as a university researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology.
