Juray De Wilde received his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from the Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium, in 2001. He did a postdoctoral work at the Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium, and served as a Postdoc Research Associate at the Chemical Engineering Department of Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA. In 2005, De Wilde was appointed as a Professor of chemical engineering at the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, where he received his tenure in 2008. De Wilde published more than 30 papers in international journals and coauthored with G.F. Froment and K.B. Bischoff the third edition of Chemical Reactor Analysis and Design published in 2010. He served as a Member of scientific committees and as a Consultant for numerous companies, including Total Petrochemicals, Tribute Creations, Dow Corning, PVS Chemicals, The Catalyst Group, Friesland Campina, Certech, and so forth. His research interests and expertise include dynamic methods for catalytic kinetics, the modeling and simulation of single and multiphase flow reactors coupling a detailed description of the hydrodynamics and the reaction kinetics, and process intensification, in particular for fixed and fluidized bed reactor processes. With A. de Broqueville, De Wilde developed the rotating fluidized bed in a static geometry and the rotating chimney technologies, with Tribute Creations the Zone Flow reactor for methane steam reforming.
