I am interested in computational problem-solving across the domains of buildings and energy systems. This spans improvements to models and simulations, using optimisation approaches like genetic algorithms to explore the space of possible designs, and cutting-edge machine intelligence techniques. My work bridges the building, district and city scales, and is inspired by the principles of systems thinking regarding holistic analysis and interconnectivity. I am also interested in the process of software development in an academic context, and in improving the exchange of knowledge with commercial partners.
