short CV

Emanuel V. Capela is currently a PhD student/researcher at the research group "Process and Product Applied Thermodynamics" (PATh), CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials, University of Aveiro, Portugal in collaboration with Institute for Bioengeneering and Biosciences (iBB), Department of Bioengeneering, Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal. 
His research activities are mainly focused in the production of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) by mammalian cell technology and in the design of integrated downstream bioprocesses, for the selective extraction and purification of mAbs directly from the complex medium, envisaging the process integration and intensification. Moreover, he has been working with a new class of solvents, ionic liquids, where his scientific interest devoted to these compounds includes the characterization of their properties and the evaluation of their potential in the establishment of extractive platforms for value-added compounds, in particular for biopharmaceuticals.
Born on 24 of June of 1993 at Porto, Portugal, obtained his BSc degree in Biochemistry from University of Aveiro, Portugal, in 2014, and his MSc degree in Biochemistry - Biomolecular Methods from the same institution in 2016.
