Pieter-Jan Hoes is an assistant professor in the unit Building Physics and Services of the Department of the Built Environment at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Pieter-Jan’s areas of expertise include building technology, building performance simulation, energy in the built environment and the indoor environment. His research focuses on computational design optimization of high performance buildings (energy, comfort). He is interested in design support methodologies that make use of computational models in an efficient and effective way. These methodologies are based on multi-objective design optimization, uncertainty and scenario analysis and risk analysis. Main topics of interest related to high performance buildings are performance robustness, energy flexibility and occupant behavior influences.
Pieter-Jan Hoes obtained his MSc from TU/e in 2007, his thesis on occupant behavior modeling in building performance simulation was published in an international journal. After his graduation, he worked as a building (physics) engineer in industry. Pieter-Jan obtained his PhD from TU/e in in 2014. After finishing his PhD research, he continued in the same chair as post-doctoral researcher and from 2016 as assistant professor. Next to this function, he started as operational manager of the PDEng program Smart Buildings & Cities in 2014. In this capacity, he is responsible for the daily operation of the post-master PDEng designers program Smart Buildings & Cities (SB&C) of the Stan Ackermans Insitute.
