Zeus Guevara, MSc

Zeus Guevara, MSc is Ph.D. Candidate in Sustainable Energy Systems at the MIT Portugal Program.
Zeus was born into a small family in an enormous city and raised by non-conventional women, who avoided antiquated paradigms of Mexican culture and promoted imagination. Since childhood he has been an admirer of world cultures, which developed in him a strong sense of collectivity and respect for humanity and nature.
He wanted to be an ethnographer, but decided to study engineering as a mean to provide economic support to his family. Later he worked for two companies in the energy sector. He became engaged with renewable energy, which led him to pursue a Master’s degree abroad. His Dutch experience was both tough and enlightening and served to shift his professional plans.
Currently, Zeus is passionate about poverty eradication. His Ph.D. research at the MIT Portugal program represents a first phase of a lifetime project which aims to help improve living conditions of indigenous communities. Admission to Singularity University made him realize that he could have a wider impact than he envisaged.
Zeus earned his BSc in Mechanical Engineering at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in 2005. He earned his MSc in Sustainable Energy Technology at Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in 2010. He studied Sustainable Energy Technology at Technische Universiteit Delft from 2009 to 2010. He graduated Singularity University in 2012. He is currently completing his Ph.D. in Sustainable Energy Systems at MIT Portugal Program — University of Lisbon.
