Birthplace: Brazil

Kelen Almeida Dornelles graduated in Civil Engineering at Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM), Brazil, in 2001. She received her Master degree in Civil Construction from Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) in 2004 and her PhD in Civil Engineering from State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in 2008. She has been post-doc fellow of Architecture, Urbanism and Technology in 2012 (FAPESP) and 2014 (CNPq), and she is currently Assistant Professor of Civil Construction and Construction Technology at University of Sao Paulo (USP) in Sao Carlos, Brazil.She is member of the teaching board of the Post Graduation Program in Architecture and Urbanism from the Institute of Architecture and Urbanism (IAU) at USP in the field of Design, Innovation and Sustainability where she has been advisor of several Master students and she is lecturer of Architecture and Climate in the Built Environment.She is part of scientific boards of several national and international conferences, and has activities as referee of national and international journals. She is author of more than 50 papers including international and national refereed journals and conferences. She won seven academic awards and has been coordinating more than 10 research projects in Brazil.Her research interests cover two main directions: thermal performance of materials for building envelope, including thermo-physics characterization, and indoor-outdoor microclimate for environmental comfort and energy saving, with attention to strategies to mitigate urban heat island phenomenon. Under the framework of these two main themes, she investigates thermal-energy performance of different solutions for building envelope, new analysis methods for estimating the effect of innovative strategies; high albedo solutions for passive cooling and as mitigation strategy against urban heat island phenomenon; local climate boundary conditions affecting building thermal-energy behavior; indoor-outdoor microclimate analysis.
