I am Assistant Professor of Facade Engineering, with a focus on the performance of building envelopes and systems. Amongst my interests are energy in buildings, smart monitoring systems, building integrated renewables and post occupancy evaluation of buildings. I am also involved in a number of building design projects with a focus on low energy design.
I have a multidisciplinary background in engineering, architecture and design. I have a Ph.D. and Bachelors degree in Engineering and a Masters in Architecture from the I.I.T., Chicago. I have industry experience in the energy, architecture and industrial design sectors. I am part of the FP7 INDICATE project (FP7-2013-EeB.ICT.2013.6.4) dealing with demand response and local balancing of energy loads.  My role is focused on the characterisation of the building stock in urban regions. I am PI on an acoustic design project involving the development of noise abatement panels for retrofitting of building facades. I am also PI on the energy monitoring, thermal comfort assessment and post-occupancy evaluation of Dublin City Council offices and prototype housing scheme.
