Paulo Gonzaga gained his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the State University of Western Parana (Brazil) in 2014, including an exchange period at the Technical University of Denmark (2012-2013). After a couple of Industry internships including 6 months in the biggest energy producing dam in the world (ITAIPU dam), he moved to the United States where he obtained his Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2016. His main focus of research was sensor integration and dynamic structural modelling. Back in Brazil he started working as a structural and HVAC engineer while working towards a second Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Campinas focusing in Stochastic mechanics and uncertainty quantification. He is currently involved in the Marie Curie DyVirt PhD program with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and the University of Sheffield. His research project will focus on the Development of a framework for uncertainty propagation and risk management for diagnostic and prognostic models of wind turbine blades.
