Energy efficiency in buildings and technical systems
Marco Masoero (Torino, 1954) holds MSc degrees in Civil Engineering from Politecnico di Torino and in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University. He is professor at Politecnico di Torino in the Department of Energy “Galileo Ferraris”, which he directed for two mandates (1995-1999 and 2012-2015). He is International Faculty Affiliate in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering of the University of Illinois at Chicago.
His teaching, research and consulting activity focuses on two main areas: Energy Efficiency in Buildings and Technical Systems, and Applied Acoustics. He teaches
graduate courses on the Design of HVAC Systems in the Mechanical Engineering and in the Energy Engineering MSc programs, and on Sound Systems Engineering in the Cinema and Media Engineering MSc program.
His present activity in acoustics mostly deals with Architectural Acoustics, Acoustic Quality of Living and Working Spaces, Soundscapes, Noise and Vibration Impact of Transportation Systems, and the application of sound technologies in artistic/performative contexts. In the energy field, his activity concerns primarily applications in the Health Care sector.
