Andre C. van Veen was born in Issum (Germany) in 1971 and studied chemistry at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany) specialising in industrial chemistry. He received his graduation (Dipl. Chem.) in 1997 and his PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2000 with Martin Muhler. Research stays as a post-doctoral fellow at the Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse in Villeurbanne (France) with Claude Mirodatos and at the Max-Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim (Germany) with Ferdi Schüth followed. He was recruited as permanent CNRS staff (CR1) in 2003 working on structured reactor systems. A leave to the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany) in the position of the scientific coordinator of the collaborative research centre SFB 558 preceded his group leader function with Johannes A. Lercher at Technische Universität München (Germany). His habilitation in 2011 at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (France) focused on structured reactors for heterogeneous catalysis. He obtained his habilitation at Technische Universität München in middle 2012 and became private lecturer shortly after. Towards the end of 2012 he was appointed a personal chair as professor of engineering at the University of Warwick (UK).
