Ivan is a Research Associate in Building Physics, Modelling & Programming and is a member of the RCUK Centre for Energy Epidemiology. His current work involves the dynamic simulation modelling of the energy consumption of the non-domestic building stock of England and Wales. It also includes further development of the SimStock modelling tool which is a platform for a non-domestic building stock analysis based on automated sampling, model creation, simulation, and results processing.
Ivan's research interests are related to improving a built environment by designing energy efficient buildings and cover broad range of building and building services topics including: low-energy buildings, building heat transfer; thermal comfort; energy efficiency, optimal control and operation of HVAC systems; modelling of buildings and HVAC systems using dynamic simulation tools, etc.
Ivan joined the UCL Energy Institute as a Research Associate in February 2016. Prior to joining the UCL Ivan held a Research Fellow position at De Montfort University where he was participating in several research and consultancy projects. Research activities were conducted through two EU FP7 projects (KAP and REEMAIN) about industrial sustainability and integration of renewable systems in industrial facilities, and EPSRC CIS funded project MINDER which explores the extent to which factories with electrical loads that can be shifted can be used for grid management to enable greater penetration of renewable energy.
Ivan graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade-Serbia, Division of HVAC in 2004. Before starting a PhD studies at De Montfort University in October 2006, he was working as a Building Services Design Engineer mainly involved in the design of HVAC systems in non-domestic buildings including office blocks, hotels and multi-functional shopping centres. PhD research has been conducted at the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development with the main research objective to investigate a possibility of estimating HVAC systems energy demand as a function of minimal number of building and HVAC system parameters (such as system type, temperature regimes, building fabrics, glazing properties, etc.) for non-domestic buildings, in particular office buildings. Parallel with the PhD studies Ivan was participating in the Marie Curie Research Training Network where he was holding an Early Stage Research position in the CITYNET project which main task was development of tools to improve the energy management of large scale urban projects.
