Personal profile

Research interests

Murat has a multi disciplinary engineering and academic background. He worked ten years' as an electrical building services engineer. Consequently, he obtained substantial experience in designing and comissioning electrical building services systems.

He has a first degree in "electrical and electronics engineering" (BSc. Hons.) from Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), and post graduate degrees in “low-energy building services engineering” (MSc) and "energy demand studies in buildings" (MRes and PhD) with distinctions from Loughborough University.

During his post-graduate training, he was trained extensively in built environment topics including; mechanical building services design, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, building performance computational modelling (i.e. Computational Fluid Dynamics and Dynamic Thermal Simulation) and passive design solutions in low carbon buildings.

In his PhD, he conducted research in ventilation effectiveness of single zone naturally ventilated (NV) systems using CFD and full-scale experimental methods.

Following the completion of his PhD, he worked as a post-doctoral research associate at UCL in AIRBODS project and Event Research Program (ERP) (funded by EPSRC and the UK government) to investigate the relationship between ventilation systems and airborne infection (i.e SARS-CoV-2) transmission risks. The projects provided infection risk mitigation strategies to the industry and a data driven guidance to the UK government. The research received a national award from CIBSE.

Later, he was appointed as assistant professor in building services engineering at University of the West of England Bristol (UWE) where he taught various lectures in building energy demand and building services engineering.  

He uses experimental and numerical methods to conduct research in built environment field with the purpose of improving energy efficiency and indoor environmental conditions in buildings.

His current research interests include natural and mechanical ventilation systems, thermal comfort in buildings, indoor air quality and indoor airborne infection resilency using computational modelling tools, controlled experiments and post occupancy evaluation methods.
