Harrie Jansma

Harrie Jansma joined Delft University of Technology in 2000 after receiving his degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Groningen (Hanzehogeschool) in 1997 and after working for 2 years at the University of Groningen as a Research Technician. 

Together with the other technicians of the Catalysis Engineering group (Willy Rook, Bart van der Linden and Liliana Baron), he gives technical support to the scientists in the lab, mainly focussing on the high pressure equipment and multi-flow reactor systems. 

Besides the technical support, small research projects are done and also teaching PBV to first year bachelor students. 

Harrie is Area supervisor of the labs in the Industrial Catalysis Lab (Building 67).
