Realizing Great Vision – in a Material World

What’s the “origins” story from your perspective?

I joined Gert Desmet as a PhD student after he had been looking at the influence of order on dispersion, using computational fluid simulations in pillar arrays – relatively easy to simulate in 2D. During those simulations, Gert realized that the performance gains could be exploited in better chromatographic columns. He considered many aspects that I could use; the sidewall effect and the shape of the pillars, for example. During my PhD, I explored several different directions, developing even better solutions in some cases, but I have to say that Gert had already considered many theoretical aspects at that point.
