Renewable energy is one of the sustainable development pillars. Its importance in economic transformation is manifested by the turbulent fossil fuel market. I have worked in projects focused on wave1–3, wind4,5 and solar6 energy systems. My focus is the CFD modeling of turbine blade aerodynamics for design and optimization purposes.
