Atila Novoselac, Ph. D.

Atila Novoselac received his Ph.D. from Penn State University in Architectural Engineering before joining the Civil Architectural and Environmental Engineering faculty at The University of Texas at Austin in 2005. His area of research includes studies related to improvement of indoor environment and development of energy efficient building environmental systems. By combining experimental studies and computational modeling, he is developing fundamental research in the area of heat transfer and fluid and particle dynamics in indoor environment. His recent projects include analysis of gaseous and particulate pollutant distribution with different ventilation systems, human exposure studies, impact of natural ventilation on energy consumption and air quality, and development of indoor environment heat transfer models. As an engineering faculty leader, he was involved in the planning, design and delivery of Zero Energy house for the 2007 Solar Decathlon competition at the National Mall in Washington, DC, where the UT engineering design won the second position.
