João is an ERAMUS+ student from the New University of Lisbon. He was born in Lisbon, Portugal, 22 years ago and he is a Chemical and Biochemical Engineering student at the New University of Lisbon, currently finishing his Master’s degree. After having studied in Zaragoza, Spain, and having taught English language in a rural school of Thailand, João was very tempted to accept the opportunity of doing his Master’s thesis placement in the wonderful town of Guildford, UK, fulfilling his eagerness of living abroad. After a meeting with Hugo and listening to what drives this company, João was fully convinced on joining the amazing team of Smart Separations. João works as a Product Developer Researcher, with the objective of improving the product manufacturing and taking it to a larger scale.
