I received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in 1998 from the University of Porto. Presently, I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) where I teach courses in the areas of electric circuits, fundamental electronics, power electronics, electric drives, and renewable energies, within the Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I’m also involved in teaching a course in the Doctoral Program in ECE at FEUP.

My main scientific research interests are: power electronics systems; renewable energy systems namely wind and solar; energy storage.

My research activity is developed within the Research Centre for Systems and Technologies (SYSTEC). I am a senior member of IEEE.
