Dr Hannes Gauch

Job title: 
Research associate

Hannes’ current research is across civil and environmental engineering and focusses on resource efficiency in the construction and operation of buildings. More specifically, he is interested in exploring trade-offs between service, emissions, energy, and cost amongst design options in both construction and operational phases. He contributes to the development of a software tool which permits to optimise realistic building designs for embodied emissions and costs.

Hannes graduated with an MSc in Mechanical Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, before obtaining a PhD at Imperial College London in Aeronautical Engineering. Currently, Hannes holds a Research Associate position at the University of Cambridge as part of the Use Less group and UK FIRES.
