Aryal, Ashrant Assistant Professor


I am interested in the use of different technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), sensor signal processing, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to make the our built environment more adaptive and more human-centered. The objectives are to improve human comfort, productivity and well-being by using intelligent indoor environmental controls while trying to maintain energy efficient building operations. Some example topics of interest are:

Human-Building Interaction

Thermal comfort modeling and control of HVAC and personal comfort systems

Physiological monitoring to understand the impact of indoor environment

Grid-Interactive Efficient buildings

Building energy simulations with occupant behavior

Wearable sensing for construction safety
