Sundar Singaravel obtained a Master in Sustainable Energy Technology from the Eindhoven University of Technology, dis17_speaker_sundar-swhere he specialised in the area of Building Performance Simulation (BPS). He continued working in the building sector for about four years, developing design strategies for energy performance, natural ventilation, indoor comfort and fire safety. Strategies developed were for both building systems/installations and building design located in Netherlands, Ireland, Dubai, Qatar and India. He is currently working as a PhD researcher in the Department of Architectural Engineering, researching on a Machine Learning Method suitable for design stage application to predict building energy.
