Doctor David Glew

David is a Research Fellow in the Building Physics and Performance group within the Centre of the Built Environment. His research interests are around the performance gap between as-built and designed energy efficiency in buildings. This incorporates on site testing of building fabric, dynamic modelling of buildings and the in-use monitoring of energy consumption in occupied buildings. He is also interested in the ramifications of the performance gaps in terms of Greenhouse Gas emissions and performing Life Cycle Assessments on products and processes.
