Background and activities
Professor Salvatore Carlucci received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees with honours from Politecnico di Milano in Italy. Currently, he is subtask leader of IEA-EBC Annex 79 on Occupant-centric building design and operation and is a fellow of IBPSA, the International Building Performance Simulation Association. He has contributed as a partner to several projects funded by the European Union belonging to the Intelligent Energy Europe program, the Seventh framework program, and the Horizon 2020 program, and to three Annexes approved by the International Energy Agency (IEA). He is a member of the editorial board of two peer-reviewed scientific journals (Energy Efficiency and Energies), a reviewer for several international journals and an evaluator of research applications for few international universities and institutions.
Carlucci has published about 60 scientific papers and contributed to seven books on occupant-centric building design and operation, indoor environmental quality (thermal, visual and acoustic comfort, and indoor air quality), sustainable, smart and low-energy buildings, building performance simulation and optimization, and building physics.
