Short bio

Humberto Rocha is currently an Invited Assistant Professor at University of Coimbra and Researcher at the Inesc-Coimbra and CeBER Research Centers. He received both his bachelor and master degrees in Applied Mathematics from the University of Coimbra in 1998 and 2001, respectively. In 2005, he completed a PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics at Old Dominion University (ODU) and NASA Langley Research Center, both in Virginia, USA. He received a medical degree from the University of Minho in 2015. His research centers on applications in physics, inverse engineering, aeronautics, medicine, and recently economics. This multidisciplinary approach lead to publications in a variety of journals of different areas, including Journal of aircraft, Medical Physics, Physics in Medicine and Biology, Physica Medica. Most of his publications are in top journals of his area (Applied Mathematics), including SIAM Journal on Optimization, Journal of Global Optimization, Computational Optimization and Applications, Applied Mathematical Modeling, Applied Mathematics and Computation, Mathematical and Computer Modelling, Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization.
