Dr Aritra Ghosh

Research Fellow


I work with both active and passive technologies for sustainable building and environment. My current project involves to investigate first, second and third generation photovoltaics for building integration considering occupants thermal comfort and reduction of building’s total energy demand. I was involved to explore smart switchable glazing application for adaptive sustainable low energy building during my PhD.

I am also a member of the Renewable Energy department in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.
