Daan is (co)author of over 60 scientific publications. During his professional career at a Flemish R&D and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, he developed various sensors and sensor technologies for  air and water quality monitoring. During this period he gained experience in microelectromechanical  and resonator systems, electrochemical sensors, drop-on-demand deposition methods and ionic liquids. Besides the scientific aspects, Daan has, as inventor, been involved in a number of patent applications. Daan joined V.O. in December 2017.
