Tomás is a PhD Researcher at SSL. He has finished his Master’s degree at the New University of Lisbon, Portugal, where he studied Applied and Bio Organics Chemistry. This has provided him with core tools to work in research and development of new technologies and techniques. The lab environment is his comfort zone, but Tomás also likes being challenged to keep adding knowledge and experience to his portfolio. Throughout his Master Thesis and his internship, he started studying the influence of the volatile organic compounds in the life of human beings. Here, his interest in improving the quality of the air we breathe began. He felt that his academic life wasn’t done yet and has moved to the UK, Lancaster, in 2017 to pursue his dream of adding value to science through innovation and help to develop a technology that can change the world and reduce significantly the air pollution. Tomás his really passionate about chemistry, nature and conservation of the planet Earth. He found out that he shared these common goals with Smart Separations Ltd and he’s here to help put them forward!
