Visiting Scientists

Post Doctoral Scholars

Kadeem Dennis

Co-supervised with Kamran Siddiqui at Western University, Kadeem's research involves the investigation of building decarbonization strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings in economically viable ways. Kadeem will develop, calibrate, and use various urban simulation software from building to city scales.

Ph.D. Students

Ali Madadizadeh

Ali's research involves the investigation of building decarbonization strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings. Ali will use optimization techniques and economics models to propose decarbonization solutions toward creating cost-effective environmentally-aware buildings.

Mojtaba Safdari

Mojtaba's research involves the investigation of smart building controls toward decarbonization strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings. Mojtaba will use advanced controls and optimization techniques to find solutions for controlling building variables toward cost-effective environmentally-aware buildings.

Hang Yin

Co-supervised with Scott Krayenhoff, Hang's research involves integration of Building Energy Models (BEMs) into the Global Environmental Multiscale (GEM) model. The GEM model is the primary weather forecast and climate model used by the Government of Canada. Hang will additionally consider integrating sustainable building components such as green and photovoltaic roofs into the GEM model.
