UC Researcher
CIE researcher since 2011 and a PhD student in Sustainable Energy Systems at University of Coimbra (framed under the MIT-Portugal Program) since 2016. She has been working on the Life-cycle assessment of buildings focusing on the Prefabrication. The Ph.D. thesis theme is “Comprehensive Life-cycle assessment of prefabricated houses”. From June to September 2018, she was a vising student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Materials Systems Laboratory (MSL-MIT) and during that period has developed a combined model to predict the economic and environmental impacts of the use of prefabrication in comparison with standards construction in the construction sector (foccusing on end-of-life waste treatment strategies, regional variability and data uncertainty). Vanessa has a degree in architecture in Faculty of Architecture of University of Porto (2006) and a master degree in Energy for Sustainability in Faculty of Science and Technology of University of Coimbra (2015) . She has worked as an architect in a architecture, engeneering and design entreprise (from 2005 to 2015), being there responsible for CNLL’s R&D department and for the implementation of management systems of Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) certification scheme, NP 4457: 2007 (2011).
