Biography

Andrea Mammoli conducts research in distribution-scale energy systems, with a particular emphasis on the interaction between buildings and power distribution for the purpose of increasing the fraction of energy from renewable resources. Examples of this research include thermal and battery storage systems, system schedule optimization and demand response algorithms. Mammoli led the modernization project for the UNM Mechanical Engineering building's solar-assisted HVAC system, which now serves as a living laboratory to conduct research and to train engineers in this fast-developing field. In the past, Mammoli also conducted research on low Reynolds number fluid mechanics, including flow of particle suspensions and mixing in microfluidic devices, using a combination of experiments and numerical simulations on high-performance parallel computers.
