Biography

Dr Diogo Montalvão is currently Head of Education and Professional Practice and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Design & Engineering. He is also an Editor for Heliyon, an open-access Elsevier journal.

He has been developing his career in Mechanical Engineering both with industry and academia, being involved in a number of research projects and having published one chapter in a book and nearly forty publications.

Diogo started his career in RAMS/RCM in the Rolling Stock industry at ADtranz and Bombardier Transportation. After completing his PhD, he was appointed a one-year Professorship in the MIT-Portugal Doctoral program in Engineering Design and Advanced Manufacturing.

He supervised a KTP project on Balance of Plant of Hydrogen Fuel Cells (Euro-Energy Solutions) and participated in the qualifying tests of the windward assembly of the Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle (IXV) for SPS (Snecma Propulsion Solide, SAFRAN group) in a project led by TAS-I (Thales Alenia Space Italia). In a project for OGMA (Portuguese Aeronautic Industry), he was responsible for the vibration analysis and re-design of a structural modification on a C-130 aircraft...
