Oliveira, Portuguese, has a Bachelor degree (5-years duration, 1993) and a Master degree (2-years duration, 1996) in Civil Engineering by University of Porto, and a PhD Degree (2003) in Civil Engineering by University of Minho. Currently, he is Associate Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering of University of Minho.
His main research interests are related to the experimental and numerical analysis of traditional and heritage masonry structures, earthquake engineering, repair and strengthening of masonry, earthen construction, vernacular stone heritage, risk analysis and durability.
Daniel Oliveira has been involved in more than 40 research projects in the field of masonry, funded on a competitive basis, carrying out coordination tasks in 7 international and 5 national projects. In particular, he has been the principal investigator of the HeritageCare project, and the UMinho local coordinator of NIKER and OPHERA projects, funded by the European Commission.
He supervised 5 post-Doc students, 30 PhD students and 90 MSc students, from Portuguese and international universities. He is author of more than 300 technical and scientific publications about masonry (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8547-3805), currently holding a Scopus h-index of 40. He worked in 5 RILEM committees as researcher (being the Secretary in two of them), dealing with the performance of masonry and earthen constructions.
Daniel Oliveira is Deputy Coordinator of the international Master course in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions (SAHC, www.msc-sahc.org), coordinated by University of Minho and funded by the European Commission as Erasmus Mundus Master Course for a period of 10 consecutive years, award winner of the “EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards 2017”.
From 2017 to 2019, Daniel Oliveira was the President of the School Council of the School of Engineering, University of Minho, the body in charge of the government and strategic decisions of the School of Engineering.

Prof. Dr. Clara Pimenta do Vale
University of Porto, Portugal

Clara Pimenta do Vale (1967) is an Architect from the University of Porto (1991) who specialised in building physics and Portuguese 20th-century construction history. She holds an MSc in Building Construction from the Faculty of Engineering (1999) and a PhD in Architecture (2012).
Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Architecture, a member of the FAUP Executive Board, a Deputy Director of CEFA - Centre of Studies of the Faculty of Architecture, and an Integrated Researcher of CEAU - Centre of Studies of Architecture and Urbanism, member of the following groups DFL- Digital Fabrication Lab and PACT- Architectural Heritage of the City and the Territory [lines ARAPE - Actions of Architectural Rehabilitation of the Built Heritage and EHC - Studies in the History of Construction which she coordinates].
Her research focus includes Construction History (from a learning perspective to respond to current challenges such as heritage conservation, building rehabilitation, sustainability, or climate change), Vernacular Architecture (proximity to local, natural, regenerative materials, and the rational use of resources), the study of building materials from a historical perspective (cork, natural cement, earth, wood, ceramics), and new technologies applied to the construction and rehabilitation of the built heritage (photogrammetry, laser scanning, thermography, modelling, digital fabrication).
