Smart building energy efficiency and retrofit
This research area integrates human activities into energy modeling for buildings and communities. Findings provide intelligent and optimal energy retrofit decisions for buildings and infrastructure, e.g. electric vehicle charging stations. Outcomes lead to a better understanding of the interactions among technology, behavior, and sustainability.
Sustainable electric vehicle charging infrastructure
Virtual design, construction, and project management
This research area creates intelligent countermeasures to prevent workplace injuries, such as construction sites and work zones. Findings provide injury hazards, VR/AR training tools, and safety enhancement programs. Outcomes improve occupational safety and health in the AEC industry, mitigate OSH risks, and reduce fatalities.
