Biography

Matej is a doctoral researcher at Loughborough University, with an interest in forecasting models and machine learning. His research is focused on the prediction of summertime indoor temperatures and overheating risk. He joined the London-Loughborough (LoLo) EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand in 2015 and completed the MRes in Energy Demand Studies in 2016. He also worked part-time as a University Teacher (2016-2018).

Prior to this, he worked as a project engineer in the civil department of a multinational company in the field of steel and aluminium plant-making (2013-2015). During his studies, he worked part-time in an architecture and engineering firm in Italy (2012) and as a substitute teacher of Mathematics and Physics at a secondary school of science with Slovenian teaching language (2012). He got a BSc in Building Engineering and an MSc with honours in Civil Engineering from the University of Trieste (2013).
