JOÃO ALMEIDA, Prof. Dr.
João Almeida has been practicing structural engineering for three decades, always with the ambition to design simple, efficient and elegant structures. While quality of delivery is the fundamental principle guiding João Almeida's attitude in engineering practice, contributing for the development of concrete structures is his overarching aim. He is a Professor of Concrete Structures at the University of Lisbon, dedicating most of his research time to design models for structural concrete and to sustainable structures. His work was internationally recognized in 2012 with the Fédération Internationale du Béton Medal of Merit in “recognition for outstanding contributions to structural concrete”.
