Ricardo de Azevedo
Ricardo de Azevedo is currently working on his thesis for a MS degree in Electrical Engineering from Florida International University working in the Energy Systems Research Laboratory. His research focus is in renewable energy and smart grid technology in which topic he has published several papers for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). After graduating from Rice University with a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering he decided to give Wall Street a shot, working at Lehman Brothers, Barclays and Goldman Sachs. He soon realized finance wasn’t for him and after a few years left New York and opened a successful small business in South Florida. Soon thereafter he started his Master’s degree to focus on his real passion, Clean Energy.
As well as being a Spark Clean Energy 2015 Fellow, Ricardo is joining the Climate Reality Leadership Corps to help spread the word on this urgent issue. When not studying he likes to go outdoors and enjoys kitesurfing, sailing, biking, and hiking.
