Biography

PhD in technological Innovation for the built environment, Full Professor in Architectural Technology. My research focuses on bioclimatic design, passive solutions for heating and cooling buildings, ICT and IT integration in the urban and architectural contexts, intelligent buildings and smart cities. The small research unit I’m leading pursues a performance-driven methodological approach for design and operative optimisation/management issues correlated to the built environment at the different scales (components, buildings, urban contexts). I’m a member of the Didactical Board in Architecture and the Didactical Board in Electronic, Telecommunication and Physics Engineering.
