Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Marco Bernagozzi is a Lecturer in Electric Vehicles with a research focus on smart thermal management. He is interested in the design and optimization of heat pipes, in particular loop heat pipes and pulsating heat pipes for efficient thermal management in electric vehicles, space applications and renewable energy systems. His research also involves exploring the potential of liquid air energy storage and molten salts for sustainable energy storage and production. Lately, he has been working on also on Personal Comfort System, aiming at tackling waste energy in HVAC in buildings.

Approach to teaching

Dr. Bernagozzi's approach to teaching has continued to evolve and adapt with the times. One aspect of this is a focus on incorporating updated information and current events into lectures and coursework. By staying up-to-date with the latest research and developments in their field, Dr. Bernagozzi ensures that students receive relevant and timely information that is directly applicable to their lives.

Another important element of Dr. Bernagozzi's teaching approach is engaging and interactive lectures. Dr. Bernagozzi recognizes that simply talking at students is not an effective way to facilitate learning, and instead strives to create an active and dynamic learning environment. This might involve activities such as group discussions, case studies, or interactive simulations that allow students to put theoretical concepts into practice.

To further enhance student engagement, Dr. Bernagozzi often generates examples from industry life. This means drawing on real-world scenarios and experiences to illustrate theoretical concepts, making them more concrete and relevant for students. By relating course content to the practical realities of various industries, Dr. Bernagozzi helps students see the relevance and potential applications of what they are learning.

Finally, Dr. Bernagozzi's teaching approach is characterized by a deep respect for students. This means valuing their unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, and recognizing the diverse ways in which students learn and engage with course material. By creating a supportive and inclusive learning environment, Dr. Bernagozzi empowers students to take ownership of their learning and fosters a sense of mutual respect and collaboration between themselves and their students.

Scholarly biography

Dr. Marco Bernagozzi completed his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Padova in Italy. After finishing his education, he pursued a dissertation under the Erasmus program, which brought him to Brighton, UK in 2015. What was supposed to be a five-month stay turned into three years when he was offered the opportunity to work as a Research Officer on several projects with Tata Motors, the European Space Agency (ESA), and Highview Power.

In 2019, Dr. Bernagozzi began his Ph.D., in collaboration with Ricardo on the Thermal Management of Electric Vehicles with Loop Heat Pipes, under the supervision of Professor Marco Marengo. Throughout his academic and professional career, Dr. Bernagozzi has demonstrated a passion for exploring the latest technologies in thermal management systems for electric vehicles.
