Joana joined Astute Fire to pursue her passion in Fire Engineering. She started her career in Portugal where she graduated as a Civil Protection Engineer at the Higher Institute of Education and Sciences (ISEC) in 2010. As a Fire Engineering consultant what she enjoys the most is applying scientific and engineering principles in order to deliver the best fire safety solutions for the client’s design, in a cost-effective way which satisfies the fire regulations.
Her enthusiasm in Fire Engineering led her to design fire strategies for a variety of sectors – residential, office, retail and industrial. In Astute Fire she has also had the chance to work and learn more about computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and radiation modelling.
