Currículo Resumido

Dr. Carla Silva received the Mechanical Engineering degree (five year course) in 2000 and the PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2005, at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, Portugal. She went for a post doc at both IST and University of Michigan working on CO2 mitigation in road vehicles. She was a senior researcher at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering IDMEC since 2008 to 2015. She is now assistant professor at the Department of Geographic, Geophysics and Energy Engineering. She teaches, in the integrated master of Energy and Environment Engineering, the courses of Sustainable Mobility, Bioenergy, Combustion Technologies, Life cycle Assessment and Electrical circuits. She has supervised 40 MSc and 7 Phd students. She has 1 book, 2 book chapters, 50 papers in international peer-reviewed journals (h=19 google scholar) and more than 50 papers in international conferences. Has been awarded with 7 prizes, including the best mechanical engineering internship and the 3M prize for innovation. Areas of interest are new fuels; biomass; alternative road vehicle simulation; energy and environment impacts; life cycle assessment, indicators for sustainable mobility.
