Later that year, he moved to the Netherlands to pursue his Ph.D. at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Micro Flow Chemistry & Process Technology group, under the supervision of Prof. Timothy Noël and Prof. Volker Hessel. His research focused on the development of novel continuous-flow methods for C–H functionalization strategies (i.e. C–H activation and photoredox catalysis). As a next step in his career, Hannes joined the Research & Development division of Creaflow located in Deinze, Belgium. As Head of R&D, his work focusses on the on the design and development of innovative and scalable continuous-flow (photo)reactors, as well as the worldwide sales of the HANU™ reactor.
