Jose Capdevila-Echeverria was born in Lleida (Spain). He completed his BSc in Chemistry in University of Barcelona, MSci in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at Chemical Institute of Sarrià (Barcelona), and has an MBA from Open University of Catalonia. He showed academic interests related to materials science, organic chemistry, chemical engineering, data science, project management, and business administration.
He was trained in a combination of academic and industrial research and business skills from his experiences in Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Germany), Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (Spain), Institute for Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia from the Spanish National Research Council (Spain), Ferrer HealthTech (Spain), CaixaBank (Spain), The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong, China), and CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub (United Kingdom).
He is currently pursuing his PhD in Chemical Engineering in CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub (University of Strathclyde), under the supervision of Prof. Joop H. ter Horst. His PhD project is an international collaboration among CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub (United Kingdom), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong, China). It aims at combining and integrating membrane and crystallisation technologies to develop continuous chiral resolution processes.
