Existing lines of inquiry examine human behaviour and sustainable practices. How behaviour can be measured and simulated in energy modelling and work with BIM (Building Information Modelling). What passive conservation measures can be implemented to mitigate impact and how active systems, such as sustainable engineering technologies can be implemented or designed.

Research Interests:
Sustainable design and practice – focusing on human behaviour;
Life cycle analysis;
Energy use and generation;
Environmental engineering systems;
Sustainable engineering systems design;
Simulating and measuring human behaviour.
