Qualifications

Carlos Perez-Collazo is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the COAST Engineering Research Group at the University of Plymouth. From 2013 CPC has been a research fellow at the University of Plymouth where he has been directly involved in PRIMaRE (the Partnership for Research In Marine Renewable Energy, www.primare.org) since its launch in 2013 and in European projects like SOWFIA or MARINET. CPC completed his PhD at the University of Plymouth in 2017 looking into a novel hybrid wind-wave energy converter. In 2012 he completed a five months internship at the Directorate General for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs of the European Commission in Brussels (Belgium). Before that CPC completed his MSc in Renewable Energy and Energy Sustainability from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2011. From 2007 to 2009 CPC worked as site engineer manager for the earth-movement contractor in two large civil engineering works in Spain (a water canal and a high speed train line). CPC completed his master in Integrated Management Systems (health and safety, quality, environment and corporative social responsibility) in 2008. Before that CPC completed his MEng in Mining Engineering in 2006 from the University of Vigo (Spain) with an intensification in Energy and Fuels, during his degree he coursed his final year as Erasmus Student at the Silesian University of Technology (Poland). CPC’s research focuses on the characterisation and development of novel technology concepts to harness wave and offshore wind energy. During his academic career, he has been directly involved with three major research projects with national and international partners and provided research expertise to further international collaborations involving physical modelling at the laboratory and numerical modelling with CFD. He has been the secretary of the International Network on Offshore Renewable Energy (INORE), a young researchers’ association with more than 500 members; and been asked to review papers for respected journals. CPC’s current research involves the development of a patent for a new hybrid wave and offshore wind energy converter and he has collaborations with researchers in Spain, Portugal, and Denmark.
