department of molecules and materials

As part of the department of Molecules and Materials (MOLMAT) and the Molecular NanoFabrication research group (MNF), I aim to foster an environment to create enthusiasm for synthesis of molecular systems and applications of molecular materials in real-world technology.

Center of expertise: BRAINS

In the center for Brain-Inspired Nano Systems (BRAINS), I collaborate with principle investigators from various disciplines (ranging from computer science, artificial intelligence to neuroscience) to develop novel physical hardware for information processing and artificial intelligience. 

young academy @UT

As part of the Board of Young academy of UT (YA@UT), I aim to bring together young faculty (assistant professors, tenure trackers, VENI/VIDI/ERC-StG laureates) to build a stronger network within our university. Together, we contribute a culture of excellence at the UT by producing high-quality research and by providing exemplary education, which is actively carried out and communicated both internally and externally to the UT.



As part of the organising committee for the  2022 NextGenChem@NL, I aim to bring together young faculty (assistant professors, tenure trackers, VENI/VIDI/ERC-StG laureates) to help us build a stronger network (across traditional disciplines), get mentoring, and develop a toolbox on how to build, manage, and fund (interdisciplinary) teams.

This two-day symposium will take place on 31-08-2022 and 01-09-2022. The location is still being confirmed. 

phD course on supramolecular & systems chemistry

As part of the organising committee for the FMS PhD course on Supramolecular & Systems Chemistry 2022, I host lecture series for PhD students working in the field of supramolecular chemistry in the Netherlands. It consists of 3 sessions of 2 days that take place in three different universities. 

This venues for the 2022 edition are: University of Twente (24– 25 May), Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (25– 26 April), and Radboud University Nijmegen (22– 23 June).


Karlsruhe micro nano facilities (knmfi)

“Printing of Chemical Feedbacks enables Molecular Intelligence”. This collaboration combines expertises in the synthesis of out-of-equilibrium networks (lead by Dr. Albert S. Y. Wong, group leader at university of Twente, UT, the Netherlands) with high-resolution molecular printing (lead by Dr. Michael Hirtz, group leader at Karlsruhe institute of Technology, KIT). We aim to design a Molecular Printing Platform at the KNMFi—utilizing dip-pen nanolithography (DPN), available in the institute of Nanotechnology, INT—to control where and when a reaction can take place in microfluidic setups.

2024 Gordon research seminars

Looking forward to organize the GRS of 2024 with my collega Vageesha W.L. Gunawardana (Ohio State University, U. S. A.). Information will be followed soon.
