Expertise 

Building science, multi-scale modeling of the built environment, building energy and environmental measurements, energy efficient buildings, building energy simulations, computational fluid dynamics, building control, and sustainable and smart cities.

Research 

  • Multi-scale modeling of building energy systems in the built environment to understand relative significance of the heat transfer processes
  • Energy use patterns classification of the building energy systems to design energy efficient buildings and develop opportunities to retrofit existing buildings
  • Application of high performance computing for modeling building energy systems in the built environment to design sustainable and smart cities
  • Numerical and experimental modeling of the transport processes in and around buildings located in the built environment
  • Monitoring environmental conditions and airflow patterns to quantify impacts of building control on occupants’ thermal comfort and health outcomes
  • Design and deployment of portable inexpensive mentoring sensors to monitor environmental conditions in buildings and measure energy consumption of buildings
  • Performance assessment of different heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems using numerical modeling and experimental facility
