Fontina Petrakopoulou-Robinson
University Carlos III
Spain


Brief Bio
Fontina Petrakopoulou received her undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Crete in 2005 and her Ph.D. in Energy Engineering from Technische Universität Berlin in 2010. Her work focuses on the evaluation and optimization of energy conversion systems, advanced structures of hybrid plants and polygeneration systems for zero-emission power generation and low environmental impact and the energy autonomy of remote areas. She is an expert on exergy-based methods, and she is involved in the development of analytical methods for the optimization of complex energy systems. She has taught courses on heat transfer and the optimization of thermodynamic systems and has supervised a large number of bachelor and master theses. She has been honoured with a best paper award and her Ph.D. thesis was chosen as one the three best in Germany by RWE AG. She is the author of several journal articles and book chapters and has participated in numerous international conferences and workshops. ... More >>
