Personal profile

Research interests

Veronica investigates how to improve the energy efficiency of buildings through developing innovative construction materials. It is estimated that buildings are responsible for more than 40% of total energy consumed in the EU and 36% of carbon emissions. Therefore, reducing the energy requirements of buildings can play a central role in reducing societal carbon footprint and ultimately achieving sustainable growth. 

Veronica's research necessitates an interdisciplinary approach, involving methods and collaborators from Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics, Experimental Statistical Design, Waste Management, Architecture and Civil Engineering. Integrating the resultant information can elucidate the underlying science which provides insight into how to engineer energy-efficient construction materials.

Particular areas of interest:

  • Materials for energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings; including phase change materials, thermal insulation materials and porous materials
  • Sustainable construction materials made by reusing (waste) by-products, with a special focus in low carbon binders and lightweight aggregates
  • Biotechnology for improving material durability and reducing carbon footprint

Willing to supervise doctoral students

  • Materials for energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings (i.e., PCMs and lightweight materials)
  • Sustainable construction materials reusing by-products
  • Biotechnology for improving material durability and reducing carbon footprint
