Background and activities

Mohamed Hamdy is an associate professor at NTNU. He has 12 years of experience in research and consulting within building information modeling (BIM) and life cycle cost analysis (LCCA). His specialties are in high-performance buildings, net-zero energy buildings, indoor comfort and cost optimality with a special emphasis on using multi-objective optimization algorithm in the early building design phase. He has developed a novel holistic optimization algorithm for finding cost-optimal environmentally-friendly building solutions among a huge number of possible energy-efficiency measures (EEMs) and renewable energy technologies (RETs). In addition to 40 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, books, and conferences, Mohamed Hamdy has supervised/coached a substantial number of Masters and Ph.D. students. He has also written several research proposals, implementing proposals, and reports. M.Hamdy is an Associate Editor for the Journal ‘’ Frontiers in Built Environment ‘’ and he was an active member of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Task 40 Team: Towards Net Zero Energy Buildings. He is also a reviewer for highly-reputed publishers such as ‘’Energy and Buildings’’ and ‘’Building and Environment’’, and ‘’Journal of Building Performance Simulation’’. Mohamed Hamdy is also senior consultant for ECOGLOBE GmbH, an independent consultancy that helps real-estate developers, architects and engineers make their projects sustainable and cost-effective using advanced building performance optimization algorithms
