Dr.ir. J.T. (Johan) Padding


Johan does fundamental research in multiphase flows, mesoscale transport phenomena, soft matter, rheology, and heterogeneous catalysis, with applications in the fields of chemical conversions in fluidised beds, spray drying, crystallisation, and chemical reactor design, including electrochemical conversion.

Academische achtergrond

Johan Padding (1975) is full professor and chair of Complex Fluid Processing in the Department of Process and Energy (P&E) of Delft University of Technology. He has an MSc in applied physics and a PhD in chemical physics from University of Twente, focusing on microscale and mesoscale simulations of soft matter. After several postdocs in Cambridge (UK), Twente (NL) and Louvain-la-Neuve (BE), Johan got a tenured position at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2011 where he shifted his attention to larger scale multiphase flows. He moved to Delft University of Technology in 2016.
