Personal profile


I am an associate professor at DTU Civil Engineering. I have been working on projects of smart energy systems and smart cities, including IFD CITIES, EUDP EnergyLab Nordhavn, EUDP IEA EBC Annex 82, IFD SEM4Cites, EU Combiotes, and EU ARV. My focus in the projects is on building energy flexibility including thermal and electrical flexibility, using modelling and data-driven approaches. 

I have (co)supervised five PhD students who graduated successfully and I am (co)supervising two working on the topics of energy flexibility in buildings using data-driven approaches. I am the co-operating agent of the IEA EBC Annex 82, an international collaboration running from 2020 to 2025 on the topic of energy flexible buildings towards resilient low-carbon energy systems. I have been a member of evaluation committees for PhD theses for universities including, UC Dublin, TU Eindhoven, Chalmers University of Technology, etc.

My research interest includes smart cities, smart buildings, energy demand flexibility, energy system modelling, big data analysis, data mining, machine learning, building physics and services. I have published many manuscripts in high-profile scientific journals, e.g., Applied Energy, Energy, Energy and Buildings, Applied Thermal Engineering, etc.
