Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Escola Politécnica (EP)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Carlos received the Automation and Control Engineering degree in 2006, and the M.Sc. degree in Automatic Control in 2009, both from Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Brazil. In september 2012, he has successfully been awarded with the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control at the Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France. Have experience in rigorous modelling and control of reactive distillation columns, as a research assistant at Max-Planck-Institut ( in Magdeburg, Germany. During his masters, focused on oil industry, he has acquired knowledge in petroleum engineering, control of oil processes aiming at the start-up operation automation of continuous gas-lift wells. His Ph.D. research has held at the Research Center of Automatic Control (CRAN - CNRS and Université de Lorraine) in the context of the ArHyCo project ( of the funding Agence ANR, working on robust nonlinear control for discrete-time switched nonlinear systems subject to input saturation and nonlinearities. For seven months, Carlos held a position as post-doctoral researcher at the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo working with control for switched systems; markov jump systems/ and systems with multiplicative noises. He spent four years as a research engineer in GE Global Research in controls working on controls, optimization and analytics in different industries such as oil and gas, freight trains and wind turbines, at Rio de Janeiro. Currently he holds the position of loads and control engineer for wind turbines in the design centre of Vestas, Porto, Portugal. His research interests are control theory based on Lyapunov method; hybrid and switched systems; filtering and control of stochastic systems and applications. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
