BIO

ALMOST EVERYTHING ABOUT ME

Filipe Azevedo was born in the year of 1976 on a small city in the North of Portugal called Vila do Conde. He received the diploma in 1999, the M. Sc. in 2003, both in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Porto University, Portugal, and the Ph.D degree in 2008 on Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD), Vila Real, Portugal. 

 

Currently he is an Assistant Professor of Power Systems at the ISEP/IPP - School of Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of Porto and a researcher at INESC TEC - Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science, both in Porto, Portugal.

 

His main research interests are Economics applied to Energy Markets, Decision-Support System techniques applied to Economics Engineering problems, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) applications, Smart Grids, and Renewable Energy production integration on power systems. Filipe Azevedo has also interests in National Security related problems, encryption and cryptography.
