Dr Ahmad Eltaweel

Research Fellow


My background is based on Architectural Engineering.
My Master’s studies investigated using virtual reality to navigate and design complex buildings, via using Cyberspace (VR) techniques.
I had my PhD in building technology at the University of Nottingham in the UK.
My research interest focuses on using parametric software to analyse/optimize building performance with respond to environmental changes, aiming to achieve better indoor daylight and thermal comfort.
I am highly interested in and expert in 3D modelling and environmental simulation via using graphical software such as 3D MAX, V-Ray, Rhino/Grasshopper, EnergyPlus, Radiance and DAYSIM. I designed and modelled +100 of buildings including residential buildings, schools, office buildings, courts, and shopping centres.
Moreover, I have extensive experience in environmental analysis to design the building envelope in the early stage of the design with respond to climate changes. Besides, I have such experience in building’s material properties.
I have several publications in international peer reviewed journals in the fields of Parametric Design, Architectural Technology, and Environmental Analysis.
I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching UG and PG students, and mentoring PhD students.
