Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Business Engineering at the Technical University of Karlsruhe, Germany 2009 (final thesis on the feasibility to establish a refrigerated warehouse cooled down with thermal chillers and their application for air conditioning systems driven by cogeneration heat)
Committee member of Standards Australia as a nominee from AIRAH, committee CS-028 â€œSolar Water Heatersâ€: Development of the Australian standard â€œSolar cooling and heating systems - Calculation of energy consumptionâ€, 2013
Research scientist in Singapore from October 2013 until March 2014: Installation of a small scale absorption chiller laboratory in a research cooperation between university and industry; TRNSYS simulation work on the, by the time, largest solar cooling plant worldwide in order to optimize energetic performance of the plant.
Low temperature solar thermal systems with focus on solar cooling using absorption chillers:
- TRNSYS simulations and analyses of absorption chiller systems with and without thermal storage for various Australian climates
- Performance factors and evaluation of solar cooling systems
- Absorption chiller modeling
