Background and activities
Current area of work
"Effective energy use in existing buildings with the use of modern sensor technology and building automation" as part of ENERSENSE. My research project concentrates on how building automation can contribute to energy efficient refurbishment of buildings. The focus of the project is on optimization of the building envelope in combination with building automation for monitoring and control of the indoor climate for different types of buildings.
