Niels Deen is a Full Professor and Chair of the Power & Flow group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He is also Executive Editor of Elsevier publication Chemical Engineering Science. Prof. Deen’s expertise largely lies in the areas of process technology, multiphase reactors, computational fluid dynamics and experimental fluid dynamics. His research is concerned with the development of computational and experimental techniques for the study of multiphase reactors. This includes multiphase flow modeling of intensified contacting in bubble column reactors and multiphase processes in fluidized beds.
He received his PhD from Aalborg University, and some of his previous positions include chairing the contact group on Multiphase Flow of the J.M. Burgerscentrum. He has published over 175 articles and led over one hundred conference contributions. He is the recipient of an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council.
