Expert in Capillary Gas Chromatography, Petro-Chemistry and Miniaturisation, Method Development
Expert ID: 731778 Netherlands
Starting as a researcher in the earlier years he focused more on new international developments in the Years with Varian and Bruker. He managed a number of projects with an interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers to create state of the art products. Expert strong interest in miniaturization of gas chromatography equipment.
PIONA analyzer (special, unique phases; column configurations). Various petrochemical analyzers (a.o. Lowox). Numerous one-off systems. Micro-Gasifier. Micro-GC Instrument Control Specification. Micro-GC coupled to Differential Mobility Detector (FAIMS). Micro-GC, in board data handling. Working on: fast column temperature programming; high temperature injector; etc
Expert has developed a range of analyzers based on capillary and packed gas chromatography serving the hydrocarbon processing as well as the energy industry.
He has acted as a discussion partner to find solutions for specific problems in the micro-sensors, translating them to chromatography equivalents.He has worked with many petrochemical companies to define the chromatographic needs in their analytical lab.
|Year: 1984||Degree: PhD||Subject: Analytical Chemistry; capillary gas chromatography||Institution: Eindhoven University of Technology|
|Year: 1976||Degree: MS||Subject: Analytical Chemistry; capillary electrophoresis (isotachoforesis)||Institution: Eindhoven University of Technology|
|Years: 2010 to 2013||Employer: Bruker BV, The Netherlands||Title: Sr Scientist||Department: R&D||Responsibilities: Senior scientist R&D; responsible for new developments. As this started as an incomplete split-off from Varian, initially a lot of time was put in the completion of the portfolio. A new GC electronic platform was developed and successfully introduced.|
|Years: 2000 to 2010||Employer: Varian BV, The Netherlands||Title: Sr Scientist||Department: R&D||Responsibilities: Senior scientist R&D; responsible for integration of new, external developments. My main interest was with the micro-GC in all its aspects. In this time a lot of hardware improvements were integrated. The Differential Mobility Detector, a FAIMS technology was integrated into the micro GC hardware. A stand-alone, process version of the micro-GC was developed.|
|Years: 1988 to 1999||Employer: Chrompack International, The Netherlands||Title: Sr Scientist||Department: R&D||Responsibilities: Various positions: Application consultant, Petrochemical consultant, manager Petrochemical Analyzer Group. The activities covered all aspects from pure research to active sales, as well as managing courses to acquiring knowledge.
The last 2 years I was detached to Dubai to our agent, Gulf Scientific Corporation. I acted as manager Customer Support.
|Years||Country / Region||Summary|
|Years: 2010 to 2012||Country / Region: USA||Summary: He has focussed on integrating fast column temperature programming into micro-GC equipment|
|Years: 2002 to 2004||Country / Region: USA||Summary: He has been the driving force in making FAIMS (Field Assymetrical Ion Mobility Spectroscopy) suitable for gas chromatography detection.|
|Years: 1998 to 2013||Country / Region: Canada||Summary: He has been working with leading company creating perfection in analytical instruments.|
|Training / Seminars|
|He has developed several basic GC courses for non-analytical industries.
He has developed and presented various marketing and sales training sessions, teaching the audience the technical backgroud of the company-developments.
|He has been in direct contact with research institutions and private companies to eveluate whether certain developments are fit for taking them inyto the company development port-folio. If yes, he has been the project leader to bring the product succesfull to market with the multi disciplinary, multi-company project|
|Other Relevant Experience|
|He is good in the translation of industry problems to marketing solutions; bridging R&D and Marketing.|
