Isabella holds a MSc of Energy Engineering (2013) from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Currently she is a doctoral researcher under the supervision of Prof. Jan Hensen and Dr. Pieter-Jan Hoes. Her research focuses on the appropriate modeling of occupant behavior to achieve more realistic predictions of the energy and comfort performance of buildings. She uses modeling and simulation to determine the fit-for-purpose degree of complexity of occupant behavior modeling (from schedules to stochastic and agent-based models) for specific cases.
She aims at developing a strategy that would enable simulation users to better understand the influence of uncertainties in building performance simulations, thus leading to improvements in the final energy performance and overall indoor environment of buildings.
