Session 13: Modelling & digital twins in the hydrogen ecosystem

Researcher, University of Twente

Dr.-Ing. Aayan Banerjee is Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Electrochemical Engineering in the Faculty of Science and Technology at the University of Twente. He was trained as a mechanical engineer at the University of Minnesota (2014) before receiving his PhD (summa cum laude) in chemical engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in 2018 for his work on solid oxide cell modelling. After his PhD, he moved to Imperial College London for post-doctoral research before joining the University of Twente faculty in 2020. His research aims to develop high-fidelity physics-based digital twins to reliably design and control next generation (electro)chemical technologies. His group employs an integrated multi-scale multi-physics approach that combines micro-kinetic reaction modelling, structural evolution modelling, continuum transport modelling and machine learning.
