Personal profile

Biography

Sergio graduated from University of Porto in 2005 in Civil Engineering with an honours degree for finishing in the first 10%. After he did a Masters, in the same university, entitled Dynamic analysis with vehicle-structure interaction in high speed lines, and he is currently finishing his PhD entitled Dynamics of vehicle–structure systems in railway lines.

His main area of expertise is wheel-rail contact methods and he has developed a novel and efficient method for analysing the nonlinear vehicle-structure interaction. Sergio has a strong background in software development and has experience in working with several programming languages.

Sergio contributed to industry led projects for the design of railway viaducts in high-speed lines and derailment investigation.
