During my work at UDES research center, I have mainly worked on the design, via experimental testing and energy performance analysis on refrigeration systems prototypes. I have also worked on the development of low-power refrigeration plants supplied by PV panels, and contributed to the development of a solar adsorption refrigerator. During my PhD, I have mainly worked on the phenomenon of super-cooling of PCMs for cold thermal storage, and I also developed a model for the dimensioning and the optimization of a PCM packed bed heat exchanger for refrigerators.I am currently working on defining a global approach that reduces the energy consumption of existing buildings and improves air quality and the inhabitant’s comfort by ways of inexpensive and environmentally friendly solutions.
