Daniel Miranda was born on May 18, 1981 in Viana do Castelo, Portugal. He graduated in Physics and Chemistry from University of Minho in 2005. In 2008, he obtained the MSc degree in Physics from the University of Minho. During his MSc thesis, he worked on Materials, Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, Processing and characterization on poly(vinylidene fluoride) doped with nano-silver particles. In 2017 he earned his PhD in Physics from the University of Minho, Portugal, with thesis theme: “Optimizing performance of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries through computer simulations”. Currently, he is Assistant Professor at School of Technology, Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave, Portugal, integrated member/researcher of 2Ai Laboratory at IPCA and researcher of Electroactive Smart Materials Research Group at University of Minho. He is currently focused on the development of theoretical models of lithium ion batteries through computational simulation (Finite Elements Method) and computational simulation and modeling applied in energy, energy systems, storage energy applications. Also, his current research interests focus on development of theoretical models and computational simulation applied in different areas, such as: supercapacitors, materials science (materials for energy applications: electrodes and battery separators), industrial applications and technologies (robotic, sensors, mechanics devices, thermodynamic systems or air conditioning systems, fluidic and microfluidic systems, electrical and electronic devices), health technologies (diagnostic systems), simulation systems and serious games.
