Professor Nikos Zarkadis was born in 1979 in Athens, Greece. He holds a bachelor degree in Energy and Environmental Technology (Technological Educational Institute of Crete, 2003), a MSc in Environmental Protection Technologies (University of Crete, 2008) and a PhD from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, 2015) in predictive control of advanced building systems and occupant comfort in buildings. Since 2015, he is lecturer at the School of Landscape, Engineering and Architecture (hepia) at the University of Applied Sciences of Geneva (HES-SO), where he teaches Energy performances of buildings. Between 2003 and 2010, he has also worked as an engineer and consultant in the private sector. His work and research has been focused on optimising (the control of) energy-demanding and energy-sensitive building systems (i.e. envelope, artificial lighting, HVAC, shades, blinds, etc.) in a way that they respect user wishes, adapt to the building's own characteristics and to the building's environment, respond well to outdoor variations, reduce the energy demand and provide for a better visual and thermal environment for the users.
