Professor, Docent, PhD - Chair, Building Services and Energy Systems
With a background in mechanical and building services engineering, my main expertise is in the areas of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) management, energy efficiency in buildings, HVAC technologies and systems, high-performance buildings, as well as sustainable community and urban development. Over the years, other focus areas have included IEQ systems for commercial aircraft, HVAC and environmental management systems for hotels/resorts, as well as energy system modelling for building clusters and districts.
I have participated in and managed a wide range of academic/industrial collaborative programs and projects, including in Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, the European Union, Japan, the Middle-East, Africa, South-East Asia and the USA.
My current research focuses on user-centric building performance management (with special interest in IEQ and energy efficiency), certified quality management in buildings, data-driven smart buildings/cities, climate-proofing of buildings, as well as resilient energy systems for remote communities.
Research on data-driven smart buildings is carried out in close collaboration with Drexel University (Philadelphia/USA) and IEA ERC Annex 81 Data-Driven Smart-Buildings, as well as other key Swedish and international stakeholders.
I currently serve as Vice-President of the Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning Associations (REHVA, www.rehva.eu), Chair of the REHVA Education and Training Committee, and Chair of the REHVA Task Force "Smart Buildings".
I strongly believe in the pursuit of sustainable development in close collaboration between the public and the private sectors.
Sustainability is profitable!
