Biography

Manoj Kumar Singh is a guest lecturer and researcher at Faculty of Civil and geodetic Engineering, University of Ljubljana. Manoj obtained his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India in 2011. In the following years he was the recipient of prestigious postdoctoral fellowship at University of Liege, Belgium and later the recipient of JSPS postdoctoral fellowship at University of Tokyo, Japan. He is currently lecturing on subjects regarding indoor environment quality and energy efficiency in buildings.

 

His research interest is in the field of Thermal Comfort, Occupant behaviour and Built Environment Interaction, Bioclimatic Building Design and Sustainability, Building Energy Simulation and Energy Performance of Building Envelopes. He is working the area of thermal comfort since 2006 and has published in more than 60 articles in international journals, international conferences and national conferences. Manoj also co-authored a journal paper with 63 leading researchers on latest ASHRAE-55 thermal comfort standard database Mk II entitled Development of the ASHRAE Global Thermal Comfort Database II”, Building and Environment (2018); 142(C): 502-512”, which received a best paper award from Building and Environment journal.
