Enrico is researcher at Cardiff University in the Welsh School of Architecture (WSA). His area of expertise is modelling and simulation of performances of low energy buildings. In 2009 as part of the "Centre of Research in the Built Environment" (CRiBE), Enrico focused his research on the study and design of software interfaces. He collaborated for the development of the SAP Sensitivity Tool 2009 an interface for Compliance Analysis of domestic buildings. Enrico is also teaching Computational Fluid Dynamic in MSc taught course BEEPM and collaborates for the development of core material for CPD outputs.
Enrico current role is Research Associate - Modeller in the SOLCER project (Smart Operation for a Low Carbon Energy Region). The project will investigate 'smart operation' of energy supply, storage and demand systems in Wales. The outcome will be a series of case studies and guidance, built on experimental development, for low carbon energy performance across a range of scales and geographic locations at building scale, urban scale, regional/grid scale and will include consideration of urban and rural areas, by investigating application at specific locations in Wales.
From 2009 to 2012 Enrico worked in the EU founded project "Delivering Low Carbon Buildings in Wales-From Policy to Practice" as part of CRiBE. In this period he has been responsible for Modelling Energy Performances of buildings and Compliance Analysis of domestic and non-domestic Buildings (UK Regulation PartL). Enrico participated to the development of the SAP Sensitivity Tool 2009, a simple tool for what-if scenario analysis of low carbon buildings, based on the UK Standard Assessment Procedure 2009 (SAP).
