Personal profile


In 2015, Ashish was awarded an EPSRC first grant proposal in the topic of “Active Living Envelopes “ALIVE”. Ashish’s research experience is in building engineering physics, energy management, energy generating building envelopes and solar thermal engineering. He completed his PhD in building physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (ITT Delhi), investigated the heating and cooling potential of passive technologies for buildings, including extensive experimentation and modelling techniques.

Ashish was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, in the Department of Architecture working on two projects: low exergy ventilation systems; and shallow geothermal ground energy use. Subsequently, he has a range of funded projects that include EPSRC, TSB (now Innovate UK), Welsh Assembly Government, Low Carbon Research Institute, E.On, De Montfort University, Tata Steel and Cardiff University.

With more than 30 research papers in journals and at international conferences, Ashish also is a reviewer for 6 journals in the field of sustainable energy. He has supervised MSc dissertations in low carbon technology solutions for the built environment, and a PhD on phase change material energy for free heating/cooling of buildings.

If you are looking for partners in the mentioned research fields for H2020, RCUK or Innovate UK please contact Dr. Ashish Shukla. Also, applicants for PhD, MCIFs, exchange programmes are most welcome to send a query.

Research Interests

Energy management; Energy-exergy analysis; Ground heat exchangers; Solar thermal engineering; Thermal/mathematical modelling; Energy generating building envelopes

Vision Statement

My vision is self-evolving climate responsive sustainable buildings, which can only be achieved by integrated building design aiming to bring new low carbon innovation and improvement to on-site construction practice. I’m a strong building physicist with a wide diversity of experience who hopes to transform the traditional ways in which a building’s envelope interacts with the indoor environment and its end user. My work to support this vision is multi-disciplinary research that includes climate responsive buildings, energy generating envelopes, energy storage and low carbon technologies for the built environment.
