10,000th doctorate at TU Delft
On 22 March, Annika Krieger was the 10,000th person to receive a doctorate from TU Delft, reason for TU Delft to give her extra flowers and presents. Krieger obtained her doctorate from the Faculty of Applied Sciences with the research ‘Homogenous reduction by bifunctional manganese catalysis: a quantum chemical approach’. Her research focused on the question of how computational simulations and models can be applied to homogeneous catalysis. The emphasis was on homogeneous catalytic systems incorporating manganese. Her dissertation can be found in the TU Delft repository.
The 180-year-old TU Delft has seen the number of PhDs increase at an accelerating rate in recent years. On 3 October 2019, the university celebrated its nine thousandth doctorate. (SB)
