Prof. Tina Düren
Centre for Advanced Separations Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Bath, UK
Tina Düren received her PhD in 2002 from the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg, before spending two years as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof Randy Snurr’s group at Northwestern University, USA. She joined the University of Edinburgh as a lecturer in 2004 and moved to the University of Bath, UK, in 2014 where she currently is a Professor in Chemical Engineering. In her research. Tina uses molecular simulation techniques to study porous materials such as metal-organic frameworks, zeolites and mesoporous silicas with properties tailored for specific adsorption applications. Recent work includes combining machine learning and molecular simulation, the description of adsorption induced flexibility in MOFs and zeolites, as well as modelling synthesis and self-assembly processes of metal-organic framework. She is currently a member of the MOF commission of the International Zeolite Association and the chair of the British Zeolite Association.
