Academic biography

Corné Muilwijk obtained an MSc degree in Chemical Engineering at Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands) in 2014. He then completed a PhD on bubbly flows at the University of Limerick in Ireland, where he spent a substantial part of his time on the design and construction of a pilot-scale bubble column. He developed experimental and analytical skills for image acquisition and processing, Laser Doppler Velocimetry and dual-tip optical fibre probe measurements. After his PhD, he started a Postdoc in Dublin City University, where he focussed on experimentally characterizing the transient flow behaviour and temperature distribution inside fluid channels of a heat pump core. He developed a miniaturized heat pump based on Shape Memory Alloy refrigerant subjected to stress/strain cycles. Laser based techniques such as Particle Image Velocity and Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence were adopted to measure flow and temperature distributions. From June 2021, he is working as an Assistant Professor in Sustainability in Dublin City University.
