Assistant Professor, Building, Civil, and Environmental Engineering
Dr. Mohamed Ouf is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering. His research focuses on integrating stochastic occupant behaviour modeling in building performance simulations and optimization of building design. His work also investigates the optimization of occupant-centric controls in existing buildings and quantifying occupant-related impacts on energy use. He holds a B.Sc. in Construction Engineering from the American University in Cairo, and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Manitoba. Prior to joining the Concordia University in 2019, he was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at Carleton University,and previously worked for the Provincial Government of Manitoba on their Green Building Policy.
Dr. Ouf has been actively involved in several academic and professional organizations. He is a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the Internationa Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), and the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers (CSCE). He also currently participates in the International Energy Agency (IEA) Annex 79: Occupant-Centric Building Design and Operation.He has served as a reviewer for the Journals of Energy and Buildings as well as Building and Environment.
· BLDG 691 – Occupant Centric Building Design and Operation *New Course offered in 2024*
In this course, you will delve into the fundamentals of understanding occupants’ role in both the building design and operation phases. It will equip you with essential skills covering advanced building performance simulation, post-occupancy evaluation studies, and data science for smart building operations.
