Interests: indoor environmental quality; bioaerosols; energy and buildings; water demand modeling; demand side management; water efficiency
Collaborative research efforts to find feasible and practical solutions for improving water efficiency in buildings, while lessening the impacts of environmental quality, resources, and energy consumption can lead to advances in water supply and drainage for sustainable built environments. Related topics consist of, but are not limited to, drainage and sanitation, human behaviour and influences, rainwater and re-use of wastewater, smart appliances and systems, sustainability and standardisation, water and energy efficiency, water conservation, water quality and safety, water economics and pricing, water system life cycle, and water supply and demand management. All research outcomes are intended to contribute to the development of best management practices for water conservation and demand management in buildings.
