Energy efficent/ energy producing buildings and neighborhoods The research that I am conducting is multidisciplinary by nature, playing a bridging role between building engineering and architectural and urban design. The objective of this research is the development of a community design approach integrating neighborhood characteristics, building design and construction, building envelope design and current issues of building technology and sustainability. My research group is involved in a number of projects including Net-Zero Energy commercial buildings, enhancing the energy performance of building envelope of multistory buildings and affordable energy efficient housing systems.
My current research activities have resulted in involvement in feasibility studies of several solar community designs, in different locations in Canada. My work was granted several awards including IBPSA-Canada eSim 2012 Outstanding Contribution for Innovative Directions in Modeling, and the IASS (International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures) 2005 Hangai Prize for young researchers.
