Rayan is a doctoral candidate at the UCL Energy Institute. His research focuses on understanding the operational energy use in office buildings and the role of energy management, landlords and tenants by assessing the energy use intensity in various types of office buildings on different scales using the 3DStock model. This study will then investigate the energy use in individual case studies in detail and carry out semi-structured interviews to get insights at how these buildings operate in reali life and what influence their energy performance.
Prior to joining LoLo CDT programme, Rayan worked in Syria, Saudi Arabia and the UK in architecture. He alos worked in research at Nottingham University on “Minimising Thermal Discomfort and Energy use in Houses”
Rayan holds an MRes in Energy Demand Studies from the UCL Energy Institute, MSc in Sustainable Buildings Performance and Design from Oxford Brookes University and a BSc in Architecture from Tishreen University in 2008.
