Asit Kumar Mishra
Post Doctoral Researcher
University of Galway Energy Transition Energy Management


Asit Mishra is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Sustainable & Resilient Structures Research Group of the School of Science and Engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway. His research focuses on optimizing indoor conditioning energy while improving occupants’ indoor experience, towards comfortable, healthy, smart, low energy buildings. His interests include indoor climate quality in healthy, low energy buildings, occupant thermal comfort, HVAC systems, IoT in the built environment, and human thermoregulation.


Asit is currently working as a part of the HEAT CHECK project. The project aims to investigate the relationship between energy consumption, indoor environmental quality, occupant behaviour, and occupant comfort in residential buildings through a combination of in situ monitoring and building performance simulations. The goal is to improve energy audit and energy certification procedures, with the DEAP and NEAP energy compliance tools in mind. In the long term, the findings are expected to lead to comfortable and energy-efficient homes utilizing high performance renewable solutions.
