Biography

Dr Eddie Blanco-Davis started his position as a lecturer and LOOM member in July 2015. Eddie obtained a BSc on Marine Engineering and Shipyard Management from the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, N.Y., in 2004, and sailed shortly as a member of the engine department on different commercial containerships.

After carrying out water and fuel treatment servicing for various industry diesel power generation plants, he performed as a project manager collectively for 4 years at repair shipyards in Panama and Mexico.

He also holds an MSc and a PhD from the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

His research interests include human factors applied to shipboard operations; life cycle assessment applied to marine operations and machinery; marine environmental protection and regulation, including emission control, ship ballast water management and alternatives; and environmentally sound marine propulsion systems.
