Nicolás Tomey Bozo
Nicolás is a graduate of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in Naval and Ocean Engineering and he is currently doing a PhD in wave and wind energy farms.
Nicolás is involved in:
- his PhD research subject, where he looks into the hydrodynamic synergies from co-located wave and wind energy farms.
- the OceaNET Initial Training Network (ITN) funded under the PEOPLE Programme (Marie Curie Actions) of European Union’s FP7. The aim of the network is to train Early Stage Researchers (ESR) in the area of floating offshore wind and wave energies to support the emerging marine renewable energy sector;
- two visiting secondments of 4 months each to do collaborative research, a first one to the Department of Civil Engineering from Ghent University, and a second one to the Research Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment from École Centrale de Nantes.
- the International Network on Offshore Renewable Energy (INORE) committee, a network of young researchers within renewable energy whose main focus is offshore renewables;
Nicolás holds a Master degree in Naval and Ocean Engineering from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid he obtained in 2014. In the context of his Master degree he participated in a European mobility programme visiting the Instituto Superior Técnico of Lisbon for a full academic year. Then in parallel to his main studies he did a complementary degree of Expert in Development Cooperation at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. In 2014 he enrolled as a PhD student in Energy Engineering at UCC through the OceaNET Marie Curie ITN.
His research carrier started in 2013 at the Centre for Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering (CENTEC) from the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon where he did his Master thesis in the design of flap type wave energy converters. Then he jumped to a PhD research level at the MaREI Centre studying the hydrodynamic synergies of co-located wave and wind energy farms, focusing in the improvement of the modelling techniques to assess the surrounding wave field.
