Self-healing in lime based mortars Ghent University
Providing lime mortars with an early strength is usually done through expensive and/or toxic chemicals. Here we propose obtaining rapid hardening of lime mortars through bacterial CO2 production and calcium carbonate precipitation. Also, the autogenous self-healing capacity of lime mortars will be studied and bacteria will be added into lime mortar, to induce CaCO3 precipitation in occurring microcracks.

Downstream processing of carboxylic acids from fermentation broths Ghent University
The objective is to develop and optimise the downstream processes for purifying bio-based carboxylic acids from fermentation broths. Research combines simulations in the Aspen software with experimental studies. Currently, the evaporation process is being investigated. Other purification techniques such as membrane separation, liquid-liquid extraction, distillation, etc. will also in focus after finishing the paper on evaporation.
Self-healing concrete in realistic extreme conditions. Ghent University
Self-healing is a promised technology to improve the durability of concrete structures. The research describes how self-healing concrete behaves in different aggressive conditions, such as frost salt scaling, chemical attacks and water pressure. The extreme conditions will be applied during and after healing, and the latter will provide information on the durability of the healed material.
Sabbatical Bert Reynvoet: KU Leuven
I want to use this sabbatical to accomplish three research goals. First, substantively, I want to broaden my research expertise (numbers and learning). I recently set up a number of projects on sports/exercise and learning through master's theses. I want to delve further into this. Second, internationally, I want to set up some collaborations. I am planning a longer stay in Italy for this, but also a number of shorter visits to other ...
1) Develop a new capability of big data analytics to add to my expertise on simulation and theory. The mission magnetospheric multiscale (MMS) launched by NASA has a wealth of data with unprecedented accuracy: by visiting the teams at University of Colorado (CU) and at UCLA I can work with experts that have designed some of the on-borad experiments. Joining data analysis and simulation will give a boost to my research and to my teaching ...
