Dilayne Oliveira is a researcher assistant at the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT) of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas and currently works on projects in modeling energy systems, focusing on improving the models used for planning and expansion of the electricity sector. She is a Petroleum Engineer from the Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG/Brazil), with part of her studies in the United States, USA. She holds a master’s degree in Energy Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM), specializing in Energy Management and Markets, with a scholarship granted by Neonergia S/A (Iberdrola), and also a master’s degree in Oil Reservoirs Simulation and Management from the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE/ Brazil).

Before her arrival at the IIT, she has carried out a professional internship at Iberdrola related to the operation and maintenance of wind farms in Spain and the USA, focusing on the analysis of physical parameters of the lubricants used in the fleet and their relationship with the failures of the wind turbines. In Research, her experience has been in Brazil and the United States, participating in different projects in the last six years on topics such as analysis of biodiesel generation reactions, petrophysics of oil reservoirs, three-dimensional modeling of porous media, simulation of fluid flow in porous media, analysis of natural gas distribution networks, and application of optimization techniques and numerical methods.
