Inês Ferrão

PhD Candidate Thermofluids, Combustion and Energy Systems

Inês concluded her master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Beira Interior (UBI), Portugal. Her Master Dissertation entitled “Dynamic Behavior of a Single Droplet Impinging onto a Sloped Surface” focused on the impact of jet-fuel and biofuel droplets onto a dry surface with a cross flowing and sloped surface. Her ambition to work on a greener solution to reduce greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions in the transport sector led her to follow a PhD program focused on the implementation of biofuel in the aviation sector through the introduction of nanoparticles into alternative fuels.
