Personal profile


Christian Anker Hviid is an Associate Professor at the Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering at DTU. His field of expertise is heating, cooling and ventilation systems in buildings. His research focuses on optimal building services with emphasis on energy efficiency, indoor environment and optimal operation. In recent years, his focus has been on integration of multi-domain physical systems through web-based building information modelling (BIM) and data-driven building service modelling to create efficient commissioning tools and operation benchmarking for building services.

He holds an industrial Ph.D. degree and has for 10 years divided his work life between academia and industry, which means he has developed a strong business sense, always guided by the strong driver that the research is applicable, value-adding to the end-user, and societally beneficial.

Research areas

The governing objective of his research is to improve the energy efficiency of the building stock and create tools that can support energy efficient design and facilitate efficient operation.

Key research areas:

  • Building energy systems
  • Efficient building operation 
  • Commissioning, automated fault detection and optimal control
  • Linked data, semantic web and building services
  • Digital twins of building service systems that integrate mathematical modeling, data and semantic models
