Research Themes
Research Summary

Since her appointment at UCL, Filipa has done work on highly publicised, high-impact projects such as researching the risk of virus transmission on London's public transport vehicles with Transport for London. Filipa was the principal field investigation Research Associate in charge of data collection, management and complete analysis on the Airbods (Airborne infection reduction through building operation) project. Moreover, Filipa was the Research Associate who analysed large data sets under very tight deadlines for the Events Research Programme that enabled the opening of large events during the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. Prior to getting involved in air quality-related research, Filipa completed a PhD during which she designed and tested a mini hydraulic turbine using both experimental and computational modelling methods (CFD). Hence, FIlipa has extensive experimental, field and CFD experience in fluid mechanics, including both air and water.

Apart from academic research, she has consulted for clients such as Veolia and Transport for London. Filipa has submitted or published a number of high-tier research items (see publications), and several are currently under preparation. 

Teaching Summary
Filipa has been involved in teaching since 2016 when she completed training in teaching undergraduate students and demonstrating in laboratory tutorials. She restructured and organised notes and teaching materials during her PhD for several undergraduate and master's modules. She independently led tutorial sessions in Engineering Analysis and Flood design modules for 4 years at Cardiff University. She simplified new software learning (HEC-RAS Flood Modelling software) and compiled new comprehensive guideline notes for the master's module at Cardiff University School of Engineering.

More recently, at University College London, Filipa has been teaching computational fluid dynamics using Design Builder CFD to undergraduate students, which involved preparing lecture contents, training and notes for sessions.

Filipa has supervised and mentored MSc and MRes students at UCL, which involved frequent meetings with the students and several equipment use and data analysis mentoring sessions. During this supervision, Filipa helped develop research methods and research schedules as well as provided constructive feedback.
