PhD candidate at the Building Physics Section, KU Leuven

Damage in historical buildings is often moisture related and affects the building envelope as wel as valuable objects in the indoor environment. A correct assessment of the damage risk requires reliable simulation tools to predict the course of surface, indoor temperature and relative humidity conditions. This can only be done by simultaneously studying the moisture balance of the indoor and outdoor environment, the interaction with the HVAC-system and the hygrothermal behaviour of the building envelope.

My current PhD focusses on the influence of the outdoor environment and the hygrothermal behaviour of the building envelope. Currently I’m researching the effects of wind driven rain (WDR) on the moisture uptake and transport to the inside environment by using both experimental methods and numerical simulations.
