Prof. Bouwmeester graduated cum laude from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands in 1982. From the same university he received his Ph.D. degree on the basis of a dissertation titled: ‘Studies in Intercalation Chemistry of Some Transition Metal Dichalcogenides. For a period of three years he was involved in industrial research towards the development of the ion sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET) for medical application at Sentron V.O.F., in the Netherlands. He joined the Inorganic Membranes (formerly Inorganic Materials Science) group at the University of Twente in 1988. In 2012, he was appointed as a part-time professor at the University of Science and Technology (USTC) in Hefei, China. Prof. Bouwmeester is currently councillor for the International Society for Solid State Ionics (ISSI). His research interests include solid-state thermodynamics and electrochemistry, and are primarily directed towards the use of oxide ion and mixed ionic-electronic conductors for devices such as oxygen transport membranes and solid oxide fuel cells. In these fields, he authored and co-authored several book chapters and more than 130 research papers.
