Prof. Vasco Guerra
Dr Vasco Guerra is associate professor with Agregação at the Department of Physics of IST and member of the N-PRiME group of Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear (IPFN). He is graduated in Engineering Physics at IST in 1991. He received the MSc and PhD degrees in Physics from Universidade Técnica de Lisboa (IST) in 1994 and in 1998, respectively.
His research focuses on the modelling of non-equilibrium kinetics of low-temperature molecular plasmas. In 2016, he was awarded the William Crookes Plasma Prize, co-sponsored by the European Physical Society and the Institute of Physics Publishing, “for the outstanding contribution to the modeling of molecular low-temperature plasmas.” Within PIONEER, He is mostly involved in the study of the fundamentals and mechanisms of CO2 plasmas interacting with surfaces.
