Function: PhD student
José Sousa obtained his MSc in Biochemistry in 2013, at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto (FCUP) and at Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar, University of Porto (ICBAS). He started his PhD at the Department of Chemical Engineering in 2016, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Sebastiaan Eeltink.
The aim of the project is to establish a fundamental understanding of the relation between the monolithic column structure (macropore and mesopore structures) and peak dispersion of small molecules. This knowledge will then be applied for the precision synthesis of novel polymer-monolithic structures to increase the separation performance by one order of magnitude compared to current state-of-the-art packed columns.
