Rahul Filipe Honavar Melo Pires ESR2

My project:

“Study of the correlation between the metal labile fraction and Microbial responses in (bio)reactors”


I am Rahul, from Porto, Portugal. I completed my integrated master’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Porto, where I specialized in processes and products. In 2018, I had a traineeship at a refinery in Sines, Portugal, working as a process engineer. After this experience in Industry I enrolled in master’s program at the University of East Anglia to study environmental sciences. My interest in m2ex program is that it gives me the chance to work on a project with international collaboration with researchers from different fields. I am motivated by the opportunity to make research contributions which will expand the circular economy. In my spare time, I enjoy playing music on the piano or accordion and going out for hiking trips when possible.
