John Onyango

ND Energy Faculty Luncheon Seminars are held monthly with interested faculty to facilitate cross-disciplinary research collaborations and to enable development of proposal ideas for upcoming funding opportunities. All interested faculty from diverse fields are invited to attend.

The discussion topic for this luncheon will be centered around energy aware designs in architecture. Prof. John Onyango, associate professor of architecture, will give a talk entitled, “BioEpiNet approach in determining thermal comfort and energy reduction potentials - The case of Guttu Traditional houses of South Canara.”

This 30-35 minute talk will be followed by a discussion focused on (1) Cross-disciplinary research needs, (2) potential avenues for external and internal collaborations, (3) funding sources to target, and if everyone is agreeable, (4) follow-up actions that we can track. With your active engagement, we expect to have a very stimulating and inspiring exchange of ideas.
