Secretary – Jorge González Mira
Hello! My name is Jorge and I come from Elche, a city near to Alicante in the southeast of Spain. I did my five-year bachelor in chemical engineering at the University of Alicante, where I had the possibility to be part of a research group in the catalyst field. Now I am a first year trainee in the post-Master program, Process and Product Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology, and is the first time that I am studying abroad, I am still getting used to The Netherlands, specially to the weather! Always I have been curious about how to organize a big event like a symposium and the work that there is behind. Therefore when Octave Levenspiel association, the trainee’s association from the program, asked for volunteers to set up a symposium in collaboration with JAPIE, I thought that was the opportunity that I was waiting for. So, here I am, the secretary for the symposium 2016 and with a lot of energy to learn from my colleges.
