Biography of prof. dr ir J.J.H. (Bert) Brouwers

Bert Brouwers (1949) obtained his MSc in Mechanical Engineering at TU/e in 1972 (cum laude). A PhD was received at Twente University in 1976. Advisors: prof. dr. ir. L. van Wijngaarden and prof. dr. J. Los (University of Amsterdam)

In 1972 he started as Research Engineer at the Ultra Centrifuge Laboratory of UCN/Urenco in Amsterdam. Later he became Head Isotopes Separations Research.

In 1979 he joined Royal/Dutch Shell. First he was Group Leader in Offshore Research at the Exploration and Production Laboratory in Rijswijk. In 1983 he moved to London to become Staff Member Economics.

Brouwers switched from industry to academia in 1986 when he was appointed as full professor of Thermal Engineering at Twente University. In 1998 he came to the Technical University of Eindhoven to chair the Process Technology Section of the Mechanical Engineering Department. From 1 October 2014 he is emeritus professor of Eindhoven University of Technology and from 2015 to 2016 remote professor of National Research Nuclear University MEPHI Moscow.

Bert Brouwers has made innovative contributions to science and technology. He is single author of more than 20 peer reviewed articles on a variety of subjects published in scientific and engineering journals: Physics Review E, Physica D Non-Linear Phenomena, Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, Flow Turbulence and Combustion, Journal of Engineering Mathematics, Reliability Engineering, Ocean Engineering, Nuclear Technology, Physics of Fluids.

Bert is the inventor of patented methods and devices for separating particles and gases employing the principles of centrifugation, fluid flow and diffusion. IP rights were vested in the Romico Companies which were founded by him. In cooperation with licensing companies practical versions of the inventions are developed and implemented worldwide. At present Bert is CEO of the Romico Companies
