University of Nottingham, Nottingham, GB, Masters, Sustainable Building Technology

Within the broad field of sustainability in buildings I focused in building physics, materials and solar design of facades. The field of building physics allowed me to understand the physics of the space, i.e. the energy and the matter contained, transmitted and conditioned by the building envelope. I understand how to improve indoor air quality, avoid moisture and prevent materials decay.
