Dr. Gomes acts nationally and internationally as referee for journals, and has served in scientific and organising committees, and as keynote and invited speaker in several conferences. She is the regional coordinator (Americas) of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) W116 - Smart and sustainable built environments, and has advised UNEP in the subjects life-cycle assessment and policies for energy efficiency in the built environment; and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) on strategic environmental assessment. Regarding insertion in national and international research groups, Ms. Gomes is/was member of: IPEEC BEET International Network of Experts on building energy codes; IEA's Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems (ECBCS) Program Annex 57 "Evaluating the overall CO2 emission due to buildings and the building construction industry", 2011; Founding member (2001-07) and Vice-president (2011-12) of iiSBE - International Initiative for a Sustainable Built Environment (2010-15); (Leader) Brazilian Green Building Challenge team (jun 2000-11); (Founding) International Network for Sustainable Building Products, 2011; Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) Information Council, 2011; (Founding) Strategic Advisory Committee of the CIB TG 55 / W116 - Smart and Sustainable Built Environments (regional coordinator - Americas) (2003-); (Founding Board) Brazilian Council for Sustainable Construction (CBCS, 2007); US Green Building Council (USGBC). For academic interaction and exchange, Ms. Gomes participated in international cooperations such as with the Univ. of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering (teaching activities, research and undergrad students exchange on sustainable products development; and researcher and graduate students exchange on sustainable construction and use of water); NEXES/Groupe des Ecoles des Mines in France (GEM) (student (undergraduate, graduate) and researcher exchange on steel waste recycling); International Cooperation Brazil / Germany CNPq/KFA/DLR: Brasília Heritage of Humanity (Conservation of the Monuments in reinforced concrete). Between 2004-06, the CNPq-certified research group NEXES (Center for Excellence in Steel Making Slags), which she co-leads, developed several R&D projects, which resulted in seven product patents pending and in the Ecologia Award 2005. Her main research interests include smart and sustainable built environments; sustainability assessment; decision making support tools; integrated design process; LCA (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
