The main interest topics are:

  • basic thermodynamics 
  • thermo-fluid dynamics
  • heat transmission
  • lighting
  • acoustics
  • rational use of energy,
  • use of renewable energy sources
  • energy service management in buildings and urban landscapes.

I am particularly interested in experimental studies of: 

  • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
  • Indoor and Outdoor Comfort (UHI, UHII etc)
  • Zero Energy Buildings 
  • Passive House
  • Renovating Historic Buildings Towards Zero Energy
  • Buildings Energy Analysis
  • Environmental Thermo-fluid dynamics
  • Natural and Artificial lighting
  • Environmental and Building acoustics
  • Air Pollution
