Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, Durham University
Dr Rui Carvalho is Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, Durham University. Previously he was a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Pure Mathematics & Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on the integration of methods of dynamical systems, optimization and statistics to characterize and model complex networks in energy.
Prior to taking up his position at Cambridge Dr Carvalho was a Research Fellow at Queen Mary University of London, and a Researcher Co-Investigator on the RAVEN project (May 2010-May 2013), which aimed at gaining insights into the resilience, adaptability and vulnerability of energy networks. He joined QMUL in January 2008 to work on manmade networks under the FP6 project Manmade. Prior to that, he was a Researcher Co-Investigator on an EPSRC Novel Computation consortium, EPSRC EP/C513703/1, and from 2005 to 2007 was a Senior Research Fellow at UCL working on Geo-Information Dynamics.
Dr Carvalho has been a Researcher Co-Investigator on EPSRC grants totalling over £1.1M, and is a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.
