Rodrigo Mora, Ph.D., is a faculty of the Building Science Graduate Program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT).
Throughout his professional career, involving research and development for the planning and design of large residential developments and hospitals, as well as his academic research, he has been keen on developing tools and methods to help engineer built environments that are welcoming and pleasant.
Rodrigo is passionate about great architecture and human-centered design. As such his research focuses on improving knowledge on modelling and techniques for predicting indoor environments and how these affect human experiences. He uses this knowledge to investigate novel environmental systems that are responsive to the needs and goals of people, and in harmony with the environment.
His research is based on field studies on residential, educational, and commercial buildings. He is a member of ASHRAE Standing Standard Project Committee (SSPC-55) “Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy”; and an Associate Editor of the ASCE Journal of Architectural Engineering.
