Fluid Dynamics


Passionate about energy topics, sustainability and geopolitics. Energy engineer graduated in Brazil, with master's degree in Energy Technology in Finland and Russia, and currently in a PhD in LUT University, Finland, researching about Computational Fluid Dynamics.

One of my greatest creations is ePowerBay, a web-based solution for the energy market in Brazil and energy consulting company for Latin American markets. This project was started together with my brilliant colleagues André Felber and Fernando Witzel.

My current project is focused on supercritical CO2 and applications for Concentrated Solar Power plants to decrease equipment size and increase overall efficiency.
