Leif Gustavsson has a PhD in Environmental and Energy Systems, MSc in Civil Engineering and MA in Psychology from Lund University. His main field of research is systems analysis from a bottom-up perspective linked to sustainable development, especially building construction, energy efficiency, renewable energy, forestry and the interaction between these fields. The aim of his research is to increase understanding of how resource- and cost-efficient systems with low environmental impact can be designed, analyzed and implemented.
Farshid Bonakdar is a civil engineer and has MSc degree in Environmental Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, Germany. He has experience in construction durability and life cycle assessments of construction materials. His research focus is on how to cost-effectively minimize primary energy use in existing and new buildings.
Ambrose Dodoo has a PhD in Ecotechnology and Environmental science from Mid Sweden University. His research focus is on life cycle energy use and environmental impacts of constructions. He received MSc degree in Environmental Policy and Management from the University of Gloucestershire, United Kingdom. Dr. Dodoo has university level teaching and research assistantship working experience. He has also worked as a building estimator and environmental assessor in Ghana and the United Kingdom.
Krushna Mahapatra has a PhD in the Ecotechnology and Environmental science from Mid Sweden University and MSc Forestry degrees from the University of Toronto, Canada and Forest Research Institute, India. His main research area is implementation of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency measures in the built environment. He has broad experience of using survey techniques to investigate attitudes and perceptions towards heating systems, energy efficiency measures and intensive forest management practices in Sweden.
Sylvia Haus is a civil engineer and has a diploma degree in Biomathematics from the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, Germany. She has experience in dynamic modelling of biofuel production. Her research focus is combining the analyses of energy systems and biological systems to optimise the complete bioenergy chain considering primary energy use and GHG emissions.
Nguyen Le Truong has a Master of Engineering in Energy Technology field from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand. He has experience as a consultant and trainer in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. His research focus is to use the concept of system analysis to compare primary energy use, life cycle monetary cost and economic efficiency of different district heat production technologies and systems.
Kerstin Hemström, PhD candidate, has a MSc in Human Ecology from University of Gothenburg and industrial experience as an advanced manufacturing engineer. Her research focus is on the diffusion of multi-storey wood constructions and new forest management practices in Sweden, to understand the potential for such innovations in a development towards a sustainable built environment.
Uniben Tettey, PhD candidate, has a MSc in Industrial and Civil Engineering from the Tver State Technical University in the Russian federation and more than five years experience in construction industries. His research focus is on life cycle monetary cost, primary energy use and GHG balances of the urban built environment.
Ole Jess Olsen, Guest Professor
Ole Jess Olsen has a PhD in Public Administration from Roskilde University and MA in Sociology from the University of Copenhagen. He has long experience from research on energy markets including regulation to adapt renewable energy on market terms. He will contribute to research on the implementation/market acceptance of new energy technologies and efficiency measures. Ole Jess is Professor Emeritus at Roskilde University, Dept. of Environmental, Spatial and Social Change.
