Godfried Augenbroe has a 35 year track record of teaching and research in the building science. His main expertise is in modeling and simulation of buildings at various scales. He is internationally recognized in promoting professional use of building simulation and has served on the board of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA). In the nineties he coordinated four major EU-funded consortia of academic and industrial partners in the fields of design tool interoperability (COMBINE, 1990-1995), energy performance simulation, outsourcing and project planning (e-HUBS, 2002-2005).
Augenbroe has been main advisor of 30+ PhD graduates in Europe and the USA. He teaches graduate courses and conducts research in the fields of building performance, computational building simulation, indoor air quality, intelligent building systems, uncertainty and risk, system monitoring and diagnostics. He serves on the scientific board of five international journals and has published over 200 refereed papers and three books.
Augenbroe has obtained major research grants in Europe and the US. Most recently he received the NSF EFRI-SEED award “Risk conscious design and retrofit of buildings for low energy”, $2.0 Million, 2010-2014. He has given many keynote lectures, most recently at the 2015 Building Simulation Conference in Hyderabad where he also received the distinguished achievement award from IBPSA.
