"Modelling is the art of making the proper assumptions. An accurate predictive model therefore demonstrates your thorough understanding of phenomena."

Research profile

Frank Peters is an Assistant Professor at the research group Multiscale Modelling of Multiphase Flows where the main topic is the development of advanced reactor models for multiphase reactors of industrial relevance. He studies in detail the flow of complex materials (e.g. viscoelastic and immiscible mixtures) through porous media. An important research topic is the interplay of hydrodynamics, mass and heat transfer in catalytic fluid-solid systems such as packed and fluidized beds. The expertise of Frank Peters is in the fields of simulation of transport phenomena (CFD and mesoscale); modelling and simulation of polymeric materials; molecular and coarse-grained simulation methodology; and (non-equilibrium) thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.

Academic background

Frank Peters studied Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) where he obtained his MSc in 1995. Subsequently, he did his PhD at TU Delft with Prof. Ben van den Brule of the Rheology research group. In 2000, he graduated cum laude with his thesis 'Polymers in flow - modelling and simulation'. The following year he was a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Masao Doi at Nagoya University (Japan). He returned to The Netherlands in 2001 to become a fellow of the Royal Netherlands Academy for Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in the group of Prof. Berend Smit at the University of Amsterdam. In 2004 he moved to TU/e where he became Assistant Professor in the group for Chemical Reactor Technology of Prof. Piet Kerkhof. From 2009-2012 he worked with Prof. Bert de With of the research group Materials and Interface Chemistry and since 2012 he is an Assistant Professor with Prof. Hans Kuipers of the research group Multiscale Modelling of Multiphase Flows.
