Ljubomir Jankovic is Professor of Zero Carbon Design at Birmingham City University, UK. He conducts multidisciplinary research in the field of zero carbon design of buildings, and has established a research group called Zero Carbon Lab. He has worked on instrumental monitoring, dynamic simulation and environmental design of buildings over a career spanning three decades. He is Programme Director for a Master's course on Zero Carbon Architecture and Retrofit Design. He holds a BSc (Mech. Eng.) from the University of Belgrade and a PhD from the University of Birmingham, and is a Chartered Engineer, a Member of CIBSE, a Member of ASHRAE, and a Fellow of the Institution of Analysts and Programmers.
"A clear and well researched user-orientated perspective on the latest zero carbon building design practice and software tools, this engaging book guides the reader through the basics before discussing current best practice techniques. High points are a structured application of the latest multi-objective design optimisation tools and a vision of how some promising new building materials and analysis techniques are likely to be applied in the future. Look out for advice not seen elsewhere such as interoperability between energy modelling tools." - Dr Andy Tindale, Manging Director, DesignBuilder Software
