in Berkeley. The research´s work focus on the evaluation and
development of range-hood capture efficiency in airtight
Researcher at the ICIEE/BYG of Technical University of Denmark. My
research activity mainly focuses on evaluating indoor thermal
comfort in homes, office buildings, and commercial kitchen
environments. I´m dedicated to experimental studies,
performed in climatic chambers, as well as on-field studies with
human subjects, on evaluating the influence of the indoor
environment on the occupants’ thermal comfort and wellbeing,
and on energy-exergy concept for the built environment. Besides my
research, I also enjoy contributing to the teaching activities for
the courses taught at the ICIEE, on supervision of master and PhD
projects, and on collaborating with guest scientist at ICIEE from
all around the world.
