Carlos Simao Ferreira - Square

"Online education gives students and teachers freedom to explore and personalize their approach to learning."

Carlos Simão Ferreira is an associate professor at the faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, researching Wind Turbine Aerodynamics, with a focus on multi-megawatt offshore VAWTs. He is also the coordinator of the Erasmus Mundus European Wind Energy Master (EWEM), a joint program by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (UniOl).

Carlos earned his Master's degree cum laude in Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, together with a Licenciatura em Engenharia Aerospacial at the Technical University of Lisbon. He obtained his PhD cum laude at TU Delft in 2009, with the dissertation "The near wake of the VAWT: 2D and 3D views of the VAWT aerodynamics".
