Timothy Noel's Biography



Timothy Noel, Assistant Professor, Eindhoven University of Technology


Timothy Noël, born 1982 in Aalst (Belgium), received in 2004 his MSc degree (Industrial Chemical Engineering) from the KaHo Sint-Lieven in Ghent. He then moved to Ghent University to obtain a PhD at the Laboratory for Organic and Bioorganic Synthesis under the supervision of Professor Johan Van der Eycken (2005-2009). Next, he moved to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Stephen L. Buchwald. At MIT, he worked on the development of new continuous-flow methods for cross-coupling chemistry at the MIT-Novartis Center for Continuous Manufacturing. He currently holds a position as an associate professor in the Micro Flow Chemistry & Process Technology group at Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests are flow chemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis and organic synthesis.

He received in 2011 the Incentive Award for Young Researchers from the Comité de Gestion du Bulletin des Sociétés Chimiques Belges, in 2012 a VENI award from NWO and he was also finalist of the European Young Chemist Award 2012. In 2013, he received a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant from the European Union. Since 2015, he coordinates the Marie Sklodowska-Curie ETN program “Photo4Future” on the development of photoredox catalysis in photomicroreactors (www.photo4future.com). In 2015, he obtained a prestigious VIDI award from NWO. And in 2016, he received the Thieme Chemistry Journal Award. He serves as an associate editor for Journal of Flow Chemistry.

We will present our results concerning a novel device integrating the luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) concept with photomicroreactors, allowing the direct use of solar light in photochemistry without the need for any intermediate energy conversion. This leaf-inspired photomicroreactor based on fluorescent dye-embedded polydimethylsiloxane collects sunlight, focuses the energy to a narrow wavelength region, and then transports that energy to embedded microchannels where the flowing reactants are converted.
