ESR10: Principles of Conglomerate Formation

Host institution:  Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands  
Supervisor:  Prof Elias VLIEG
Industrial toolbox research group: WP5 Enabling Resolution
Individual project research objective: To identify principles of conglomerate formation and define crystal engineering rules for conglomerate design. 
Committee membership: Industrial Toolbox Committee
Visits/Secondments: UR, MPI, PCAS


After obtaining his bachelor's degree in chemical technology and material science at KU Leuven, Jan-Joris started his master’s degree in Chemical Engineering (Product Engineering), specializing in the fields of analysis and design of industrial processes, product design, rheology and the design of polymeric systems. Throughout this education, he developed an expertise in modeling and simulation through different projects and eventually he applied for a modeling/datamining based project in the CORE network.

Research Interests

His research interests predominantly lie in datamining, molecular modeling and chemoinformatics of chiral conglomerate systems. His goal is to develop a tool capable of investigating the behavior and finding rules behind conglomerate formation of complex multicomponent chiral systems (salts, solvates, cocrystals) based on Cambridge Structural Database entries. Therefore, he also plans to further specialize in crystallography of chiral systems and the principles behind enabling chiral resolution processes.
