Angela Sasic Kalagasidis

Biträdande professor at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Building Technology

Angela leads the research group Building Physical Modeling. As a Professor in Building Physics she conducts research and teaching in energy efficiency and moisture safety of buildings, with focus on numerical modeling and simulations. The goal is to create powerful and reliable computational tools for researchers and practitioners that support the development of innovative building technologies and thermal systems, as well as good and sustainable buildings.Angela is a Vice Dean of Education at the Department, a Board member of the Moisture Centre, and a member of the Swedish Universities of Built Environment. A selection of her numerical models is available on www.ibpt.org since 2002.
