Francisco Capucha


Researcher Industrial Ecology and Sustainability

Hello, my name is Francisco Capucha, I have a Bachelor degree in Materials Engineering and will finish my Master degree in Materials Engineering by January 2019. I am researching Flows and Stock of Critical Raw Materials within Portugal for the 'Laboratory of Waste Processing Management' part of the 'Industrial Ecology and Sustainability'.
I spent a period of six months in 2014/2015 as an Erasmus Exchange student at 'Technische Universiteit Delft' in the Netherlands. I also worked an additional 6 months in 2015 as an engineer trainee for the Offshore Engineering company 'Allseas', researching methods to increase the resistance against underwater metal-to-earth wear. I volunteer for the non-profit association 'Erasmus Student Network Lisboa', being elected for the role of Vice President between 2017 and 2018. As hobbies, I am very keen on DIY projects and 3D Printing, owning one 3D Printer.
