Birthplace: Brazil

Mechanical Engineer graduated from Escola Politécnica at University of São Paulo (1983), Master in Mechanical Engineering from the same institution (1989), PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, (USA, 1994). He was a visiting scholar at the Mechanical Eng. Dept. at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champain (1999) and Livre-Docente from University of São Paulo (1999). He was a visiting professor at University Nacional of Engineering (UNI) in Lima (Peru) at INSA - Institut National des Sciences Appliquées in Lyon (France) in 2009. Presently he is a Full Professor of Mechanical Eng. He has research experience in the following areas: flashing and evaporation waves, natural gas liquefaction processes, natural gas usage, two-phase flow instrumentation, ammonia-water absorption refrigeration cycle, Ranque-Hilsh vortex tube, Cogeneration processes, solar energy, supersonic flow gas separation, solar fuels and alternative energy system in a broader sense. He has developed research projects funded by both official agencies and private companies. Presently, he has three ongoing projects sponsored by Shell/Fapesp within the RCGI (CEPID). His teaching experience at undergraduate and graduate levels include Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Compressible Fluid Flow, and Renewable Energies. He has coordinated several extension courses on natural gas, refrigeration & air conditioning, and renewable energies. He has coordinated an extension entitled Renewable Energies, Energetic Efficiency and Distributed Energy. He has authored over 120 scientific and technical papers besides two books, one entitled "Fundamentals and Applications of Psychrometry "(in Portuguese) with A. H. Neto as the coauthor and the other "Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Distributed Generation" (2017), besides two chapters in international books. In 2018 he organized the São Paulo School on Advanced Sciences on Renewable Energies. Presently he is an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering with focus on Thermal Engineering and renewable energies at Escola Politécnica at University of São Paulo and coordinates SISEA Renewable and Alternative Energy Systems laboratory.
