The TSBE has a wide range of exciting research projects happening within its centre. All of which involve multidisciplinary research and collaboration with industry to help resolve real-world problems.
Our first researcher to go under the spotlight is Ana Rodriguez-Arguelles.
Ana Rodriguez is a Doctoral Research Engineer in the TSBE Centre with experience in the field of sensing and data analysis for energy management in buildings. Ana Rodriguez holds a BSc (Hons) degree in Physics from the University of Córdoba (Spain) and an MSc in “Renewable Energy: Technology and Sustainability” from the University of Reading (UK).Prior to her current role, Ana was employed at the Spanish National Research Council (Madrid, Spain) as a researcher on the project ‘Saving Energy and Emission Reduction in Buildings’. Her current doctoral project is in collaboration with AECOM Infrastructure & Environment UK. This research involves the development of new Smart Meter monitoring techniques to improve energy audit methods in buildings.
Ana was also a peer reviewer for the 2nd International Conference on New Energy and Future Energy System (NEFES 2017) and currently works as a teaching assistant for the Empirical Studies course (2016/17) in the School of Built Environment, University of Reading.
Ana is currently supervised within the University by Associate Prof. Ben Potter and Dr Stefan Smith.
