L.L.P. (Luis) Morais


Portuguese Mechanical Engineer from Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, Erasmus+ student at Politechnika Krakowska. PhD candidate at Politecnico di Milano in a multidisciplinary program between Urban Planning and Management Engineering. Member of Doctoral Training Network at EIT Urban Mobility. Co-Founder of Copernicus Startup.

Passionate about electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and sustainable mobility.


My research project is entitled “The impact of electric mobility in urban transformations” and deals with the spatial distribution of charging points and how to integrate them in a sustainable and multi modal way. My case study is the Milan Urban Region and the methodology is based on GIS, Data analysis and socio-economic profiling.  The aim  of the work is to plan an optimal charging network based on a fruitful equilibrium between supply and demand.
