I received the Licenciate's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Porto, Portugal in 2000 and the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Manchester (former UMIST), UK, in 2004.
I joined the University of Porto - Faculty of Engineering as a Lecturer in January 2007. Since then, I have been developing teaching and research activities in electrical power engineering and renewable energy. I was appointed as a Permanent Lecturer in June 2008 at the Power System Group in the Department of Electrical Engineering.
My research interests include Electric Power Systems, Power Systems Protection and HVDC.
I am actively involved in the Power System Protection Group and Laboratory (which was co-founded by me in 2007 when I joined the University of Porto) and where technical, administrative and commercial questions are addressed. This enabled me to evaluate the ultimate questions and most up-to-date solutions concerning power system protection challenges and thus increase the generation and delivery to the customers in a reliable, secure and quality way.
Since I joined the University of Porto I have been promoting research projects in collaboration with local and international cooperation. In the meantime, I supervise a number of PhD candidates and MSc Students.
At the moment, I am the Director of High Voltage Lab and Director of the Power System Protection Lab at FEUP.
