Joana Gomes, MSc

ProPharma Group

Graduated with a BSc in Biological Engineering at IST, and a MSc in Life Science and Technology with a specialization in Biochemical Engineering at TUDelft (The Netherlands).

During my bachelors, I did internships that were mainly focused in Molecular Science at institutes such as ITQB. However, during my Masters I realized that my interest was directed towards computational and engineering contents. By the end of my Masters I did an internship at a consultancy organization, now called ProPharma Group, with the goal of setting up a program to model dynamically continuous chromatography.

This internship resulted in a work opportunity as a Jr. Process Engineer/Jr. Consultant, at present I am working as a Process Engineer / Assoc. Consultant.
The past 3 years have been a steep learning curve with assignments for the Pharma and Fine chemicals industries focused on development of equipment, process optimization, Validation/Qualification and Project management.
