Carolina uses computers to help understand and design devices that can store heat energy from the Sun, and from motor engines.
She tests her designs many times to understand how small changes can make these devices more efficient.
Carolina worked for many years in industry, and in different countries, designing parts for trucks and buses, before joining us at Northumbria University.
She would like her work to contribute towards a more sustainable world.
“I came across these two videos. The first explains how we can save energy at home, and the second explains how that energy can be produced in a sustainable way.”
