Tobias is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for the Built Environment. His research focuses on enhancing indoor environmental quality, optimizing occupant comfort, and promoting energy efficiency in the built environment. He is particularly interested in integrating core principles of building physics and mechanical engineering with diverse disciplines such as thermal physiology, human interaction, and computer science/IoT.

Before joining CBE, Tobias earned his PhD in Building Science & Technology from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia. His doctoral research explored the use of accessible technologies, including low-cost sensors, data science, and AI, to address dynamic variations in personal thermal comfort and indoor environmental conditions across different building types.

Tobias holds a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Energy-Efficient & Environmental Building Design from Lund University, Sweden, and a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Environmental Engineering from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. He is committed to advancing sustainable building design practices, promoting open-source research and fostering interdisciplinary collaborations to tackle complex challenges in the built environment.
