Metabolism of Urban Location: Travel time and the morphology of cities
For UNICEF’s “Ger for the 21st Century” project in the winter of 2018-19, the thermal behavior of twelve Mongolian ger were studied in detail: five Occupied Ger in Ulaanbaatar, six Test Ger at a “ger ranch” outside the city, and one highly instrumented Penn Ger at the University of Pen

Environmentally responsive, water harvesting and self-cooling building envelopes
Ger are the traditional, tent-like dwellings of the Mongolian herder nomads (called Yurts in Russian).
Energy, carbon, and financial analysis of climate action plan scenarios for buildings.
Investigating the development of a game about energy sustainability.
A report on Phase I of this project, as well as a proposal for delivering an evaluation of the energy pathways for the Philadelphia Region in Phase II.
This report seeks to improve and increase the utility of building information collected over the years, using development of pertinent energy metrics for tailored reports, as well as mathematical techniques to verify correlations.
An initial effort to develop and analyze the carbon footprint of the UPHS. This footprint is a part of a larger effort to account for the carbon produced beyond the main University of Pennsylvania campus.
