The Future Leader award recognises my research which aims to determine how the thermal environment impacts thermalcomfort, productivity, wellbeing, and health; and how to reduce the energy consumption of buildings.

The Excellence in HVAC&R Research reflects the impact that the tools I had the privilege to create and co-develop are having on the hvac field. This includes the CBE Thermal Comfort Tool, CBE Clima Tool, pythermalcomfort, jsthermalcomfort, Cozie, HeatWatch, and SMA Extreme Heat Tool.
