Farney Coutinho Moreira holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in the Thermal and Fluid area from the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), a Master in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA) and a Bachelor's degree in Aeronautical Sciences from the Universidade Braz Cubas. The theme of the Doctoral thesis was ?Analysis of Hypersonic Flows in Conditions of Thermodynamic Non-Equilibrium with Applications in Atmospheric Reentry?. In the last 17 years, he has been conducting research and working on numerical simulations of hypersonic flows on aerospace configurations of practical interest in the Brazilian Aerospace program. He worked as a researcher at the Technological Center of the Navy in São Paulo (CTMSP) in high-speed flow simulation projects in centrifuges. He started his career as a professor in 2008, right after completing his master's degree. Acting in the academic field, I'm Deputy Coordinator, I'm part of the Structuring Teaching Nucleus (NDE) and I teach subjects for the Engineering and Technology courses at the ETEP University Center. It is noteworthy that he has already taught 20 subjects for 7 undergraduate courses, teaching 5,520 hours/class to 48 classes, totaling 2,286 undergraduate students in 2 different Higher Education Institutions (IES). So far there are 35 Course Completion Work (TCC) guidelines. Conducts research in conjunction with the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) on stability analysis projects in hypersonic flows in practical applications of interest to the American Air Force. Active member as an evaluator of international journals and session mediator at scientific events. The results from the doctoral research were documented in scientific publications in international journals, and national and international conferences, among which the publication of the work "Thermal analysis of hypersonic flows of carbon dioxide and air in thermodynamic non-equilibrium", published in the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer in 2021 with Qualis CAPES A1 classification in Engenharias III, considered as one of the most relevant journals in the field of heat and mass transfer. He is currently a Researcher in the Postgraduate Program in Space Science and Technologies (PG/CTE) at the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA), developing research in the area of thermal radiation in hypersonic plasma flows in a thermodynamic non-equilibrium state with chemical reactions of dissociation and ionization typically observed under atmospheric re-entry conditions of space vehicles in the Earth's atmosphere and the planet Mars. Reentry capsules are the vehicles that allow a crew to safely return after a space mission, and entry into the atmosphere is a critical phase of operation for the mission. The accuracy in predicting the effects of dissociation and ionization in numerical simulations of hypersonic flows is extremely important for the calculation of heat flux along the surface of spacecraft and satellites. These calculations allow for the design of adequate thermal shields that maintain the integrity of the spacecraft structure and, in manned missions, the life of astronauts.
