João Manuel R.S. Tavares is graduated in Mechanical Engineering from University of Porto, Portugal (1992). In 1995, he obtained a M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in the field of Industrial Informatics, also at University of Porto. In 2001, he obtained a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the same University, and in 2015 the Habilitation in Mechanical Engineering.
From 1995 to 2000, he was researcher at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (INEB). Since 2001, he has been senior researcher at the Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (INEGI).
He was Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEMec) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) between 2001 and 2011, Associate Professor in the same department until July 2021, and since then, he has been Full Professor in the same department. He has been the Head of DEMec since 2023.
