Fontina Petrakopoulou-Robinson
University Carlos III

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 >>

Francesco Calise
Industrial Engineering, University of Naples Federico II

Brief Bio
Francesco Calise was born in 1978 and graduated cum laude in mechanical engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy in 2002. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Thermal Engineering in 2006. He is Full Professor of applied thermodynamics at the University of Naples Federico II.  His research activity is mainly focused on the following topics: fuel cells, advanced optimization techniques, solar thermal systems, concentrating photovoltaic/thermal and photovoltaic systems, energy saving in buildings, solar heating and cooling, Organic Rankine Cycles, geothermal energy, dynamic simulations of energy systems, renewable polygeneration systems, hydrogen, district heating and cooling, power to x, smart grids and many others. He was invited lecturer for PhD courses and international conferences. He is a member of the scientific committees of several international Conferences and Chair of two international conferences. He teaches several courses of energy management and applied thermodynamics at the University of Naples Federico II for BsC, MS and PhD students. He was a supervisor of several Ph.D. degree theses.  He is a reviewer of about 30 international Journals. He was involved, as researcher or principal investigator, in several Research Projects funded by EU and Italian Government.  He is Member of the Editorial Board of several International Journals.
