Research Interests

Tom’s research interests are related to the investigation of actual energy use in domestic dwellings. Tom has monitored gas and electricity consumption and indoor temperatures to develop understanding of how and when occupants use energy in their homes. This work informs the assumptions used in building energy models which are used as research and policy tools.

Indoor temperatures
Heating practices
Analysis of high resolution gas and electricity data
Steady state monitoring techniques
