Camilo Rindt is an Associate Professor within the Energy Technology group at the department of Mechanical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Camilo’s main interests are in the fields of PV/T combi-panels, seasonal compact heat storage for the built environment using solid sorption materials and district heating networks. Applications of his research range from material investigations on the hydration/dehydration behavior of solid sorption materials using molecular dynamics simulations and/or TGA/DSC experiments, to the design of a building-integrated PV/T system for the built environment and/or the optimization of a district heating network using distributed energy sources like geothermal heat and heat pumps.
Camilo Rindt received his MSc and PhD from TU/e. In addition to his work as Associate Professor, he is also Graduate Program Director of the Master’s programs Mechanical Engineering, Sustainable Engineering Technology and Systems & Control. As a PhD and postdoc, he has worked in the field of biomedical engineering on experimental and numerical analyses of blood flow in the carotid artery bifurcation.
