João Coelho


I am a research fellow at LNEC, the portuguese national laboratory for civil engineering. I focus on high performance computing approaches to simulations of real-life engineering systems, such as the behaviour of large concrete dams over time or the optimization of energy-efficient building design.

 

Before that I completed a MSc in Physics at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon University. I did theoretical physics for a while before deciding to delve into science and technology management for my thesis, which was titled "The Evolution of Portuguese R&D".

 

A bit more about my work is available on my linkedin and github pages. I'm also keen on playing around with kaggle whenever I get the chance. Feel free to reach me via e-mail at joao.pedro.cp.coelho at gmail.
