Personal profile

Research profile

Jan Meuldijk obtained his masters degree in chemistry at the State University of Utrecht in 1975 (major physical chemistry, minor organic chemistry). His PhD work was in the field of inorganic and theoretical chemistry at the Free University of Amsterdam, graduation in 1979. After post doctoral fellowships in solid state physics and chemical engineering at the State University of Groningen he was appointed assistant professor in the field of Industrial Catalysis (prof. van der Wiele) at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 1985. In 1988 he became associate professor in chemical reactor engineering. His work in the Chemical Reaction Engineering Group is focused on process development of complex chemical products. In the department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry there is a close cooperation with the Polymer Chemistry Group and the Macromolecular and Organic Chemistry Group. As of September 1, 2010 he is full professor in Polymer Reaction Engineerng and Scientific Director of the Post MSc. Program "Process and Product Design".
