Henk Miedema

Theme coordinator Dehydration


Main activities: 1) Theme coordinator of Dehydration, before that of Sensoring 2) Supervision of PhD students (desalination and element recovery) 3) Teaching, at the Wetsus Academy (Physical Transport Phenomena, PTP & Physical Chemistry, PC) and the RUG (PTP). PTP relates to my PhD research, ion transport across biological membranes. 


PhD in Electrophysiology, University of Groningen, 1992.

Research interests

(Membrane)transport; biomimetics; element recovery; separation technology.
