G. Zafeiropoulos, PhD student

I completed both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at the University of Patras. During my Bachelor’s thesis I focused on the impact of radioactive elements and the isolation of those from the environment. In my Master’s research I worked on production of metallic nickel catalysts supported on zirconia for the production of green diesel using vegetable oils, such as sunflower oil, as feedstock. Currently, I am working on photoelectrochemistry field investigating potential electrodes that can be used in a photoelectrochemical cell for hydrogen production using gas reactants. Outside of working hours I enjoy watching every kind of sports especially snooker and football. Although my true passion is investigating the period of WWII and its impact on our lives even today because as W. Churchill said “The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see.”

H. Patel, Postdoc

I am a Chemical Engineering graduate from the Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, University of Pune. India. After graduation I joined Thermax Limited, India where I first started working in the energy sector. After a brief stint at Thermax, I started his masters in Sustainable Energy Technology from the Applied Sciences faculty at Delft University of Technology. During my masters I worked at the Reactor Institute Delft on polymer composite solid acid electrolytes for fuel cell applications. I also worked on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) on an internship at IHC Merwede. This culminated in a PhD at the Process and Energy department (Faculty 3ME) at the TU Delft working on SOFC model anodes and systems studies. Currently I work on combining plasma and electrochemical approaches for the production of fuels and/or useful chemicals. Aside from work I enjoy playing/ watching/ organizing cricket and badminton in addition to being an enthusiastic cook.
