Dinis Oliveira

Administrative Assistent at Maritime Environmental Sciences

Dinis studies biofouling on ships' hulls, i.e. the growth of marine organisms leading to increased frictional resistance and thence increased fuel consumption. Thus, the project includes characterizing biofouling communities, developing a friction model and optimizing current methods of hull cleaning. He is also involved in lab/field tutorials and discussion seminars with students from Master Mariner, Shipping and Logistics (Bachelor programs) and Maritime Management (Master program). Before Dinis started his PhD at Chalmers in August, 2015, he studied integrated Master in Bioengineering (University of Porto, Portugal, 2009-2015).
