Solar energy technologies for different applications
Senior Researcher at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP-UPORTO) and INEGI (Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering). I am also an invited auxiliary professor at FEUP, lecturing at both undergraduate and post graduate courses. My research activities are related to Solar Energy Systems (thermal and photovoltaic), Energy in Buildings and polygeneration technologies. I was involved in several European research projects funded through the Joule and Energy programs concerning Sustainable Energy Systems, such as R-D-SBES-R, REELCOOP, POWERSOL, SOLAR LOUVRE and GeoAtlantic. I have published more than 50 scientific papers in books, international journals and conferences. I have reviewed papers for several scientific journals. I am a member of scientific committee in the conferences International Conferences on Energy and Environment Research (ICEER).

Brief description of my Organisation
INEGI – Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering is a Research and Technology Organisation (RTO), founded in 1986, focused on research and technology-based innovation activities, technology transfer, consulting and technological services, oriented to the development of industry and economy in general. A non-profit, private and recognised as a public utility entity.
To contribute towards the development of industry and the economy in general, through scientific and technology-based innovation, while ensuring the personal and professional development of employees and the enrichment of higher education.
To grow, to be the best at converting knowledge into value and to confirm our strong institutional identity as a technological partner for companies.
It has in its base a cluster of research units specialised by scientific and technological areas supporting the research activity. Crosswise there are the Innovation, Consulting and Services activities that address the development of solutions for companies.
