Talie Tohidi Moghadam


Talie is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University College Cork (UCC).

She has received her M.Sc. Degree in Architectural Engineering from the Department of Architecture at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, where she focused on energy-resilient solutions in the design of high-rise buildings. Her M.Sc. project was ultimately honored in the USA Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) 2018 Competition.

Since January 2021, Talie has started her Ph.D. project under the supervision and co-supervision of Dr Dominic O' Sullivan at Intelligent Efficiency Research Group (IERG) at UCC and Dr. Carlos E. Ochoa Morales at International Energy Research Centre (IERC) at Tyndall National Institute. This four-year Ph.D. is funded by the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) through MaREI— the SFI Research Centre for Energy, Climate, and Marine—and the Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE CDT).

Her Ph.D. research mainly focuses on “Methodologies to use energy-efficient retrofits to achieve adaptive homes that provide healthy and comfortable indoor environments with effective delivery.” In this area of research, she will look into providing indoor air quality and buildings’ health status by HVAC systems while achieving energy-efficiency through modeling investigations and building energy performance simulations.
