Carlos is a member of the Building, Energy and Environment Research Group.
Carlos' research activities focused at international, National and regional level, with participation on projects at all levels with a focus on engaging stakeholders to adapt to climate change and understand the best low carbon technology solutions. Carlos has participated in over 10 projects for funders such as the National Environment Research Council (NERC), European Framework 7 Programme, European Regional Development Programme and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Carlos has research interest in Indoor Air Quality and energy monitoring dealing with issues in health and well-being due to low energy approaches to construction, with a great interest on big data analytics and the use of a mixed methods approach to generate a deeper understanding in energy use, energy efficiency and the impact of policy. Application of building simulation to assess the performance of low carbon technology, retrofitting solutions and low energy design, such as Passivhaus and deep renovations. Collaborating and informing stakeholders are my interest due to the multidisciplinary approach and challenges of issues in future cities and smart cities.
Carlos teaches building services, environmental design and lighting to under-graduate engineering students on the BEng and MEng programs. He also teaches environmental design to engineering and… read more
