Phalguni Mukhopadhyaya

University of Victoria
Associate Professor
Victoria, BC
Phalguni is an applied engineering researcher and started his research career in 1997, immediately after finishing his doctoral studies from the University of Sheffield, UK. Initially, his research focused on new construction materials and structural strengthening techniques. Soon thereafter, he expanded his research horizon towards the heat-air-moisture responses of exterior building envelope materials and systems. Hence, in a true sense, he is a multidisciplinary building envelopes and structures researcher who brings together the fundamentals of Civil, Mechanical and Materials engineering to address pressing concerns of the construction industry and its stakeholders.
Phalguni has contributed to the development of national and international moisture design guidelines for exterior building envelopes, materials test standards (ASTM International (www.astm.org); ISO (www.iso.org); ULC (www.canada.ul.com)), and International Energy Agency (IEA (www.iea.org) Annex reports on high performance thermal insulations. At present he is leading (nominated and elected global convener) the development of an ISO standard for Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP), which has about 10 times thermal insulating capacity than traditional thermal insulations, for building envelope applications.
