Short Presentation

Tobias Hubach studied Bachelor of Science Chemical Engineering at TU Dortmund University from 2014 – 2019 and Master of Science Chemical Engineering at TU Dortmund University from 2019 - 2020. He graduated with the master thesis “Towards a predictive machine learning tool for catalyst rejection in organic solvent nanofiltration”. Since February 2021 he is working as a Ph.D. student at the Laboratory of Fluid Separations at TU Dortmund University. The focus of his research is the development of a hybrid separation process to separate metal ions from aqueous solutions.
