Prior to that, she was Professor in Facilities Management at the University of Applied Science, Frankfurt am Main (2006–2011). At the Centre for Real Estate and Facilities Management at NTNU she has initiated and is currently leading research on sustainability. The main research focus is the improvement of energy efficiency of non-residential buildings, highlighting different approaches towards sustainability in FM from building, user, and management perspectives. Additional research activities intend to develop a general perspective on the scope of FM and efforts towards understanding the FM discipline and its development. Prof. Junghans is supervisor of PhD candidates and master students. She is leading two work packages in a large Norwegian research project (MINDER). She is working in Nordic, European and international research groups (EuroFM, CIB, CARE). Professor Junghans is responsible for the development and teaching of two master courses: Facilities Services (AAR4817) and Sustainability in Facilities Management (AAR4821) in the Master program for Real Estate and Facilities Management.

 

Fields of competences

Professor Junghans is author or co-author of more than 50 scientific publications and presentations. She has been working as consultant and reviewer for the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (FORMAS), since 2014.
