    BioDr. Laurien Vandewalle is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mechanical Engineering Department (NanoEnergy Lab) at Stanford University. She obtained her BSc (2012) and MSc (2014) degree in Chemical Engineering from Ghent University in Belgium. After her studies, she worked as a Process Engineer in industry for one year and then started her PhD at the Laboratory for Chemical Technology (LCT) at Ghent University, under the supervision of Prof. Guy Marin and Prof. Kevin Van Geem. During Vandewalle’s PhD she focused on coupling CFD with detailed chemistry for heterogeneous catalysis, specifically for process intensification of oxidative coupling of methane in a gas-solid vortex reactor. She defended her PhD in May 2020 and worked as a Postdoctoral Assistant at the LCT. In July 2021, she started a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University, funded by the Belgian American Educational Foundation
