Dr Virginia Gori
  • EPSRC UCL Doctoral Prize Fellow
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment
  • Lecturer (Teaching)
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment
UCL Subsidiary Supervisor

Virginia Gori is a Research Fellow at the UCL Energy Institute and member of the Physical Characterisation of Buildings group. Virginia is recipient of an EPSRC Doctoral Prize fellowship funding her post-doctoral research.

Virginia has a PhD in Energy and the Built Environment, which she completed at the UCL Energy Institute as part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand (LoLo). Her doctoral research focused on the development of a novel method for a robust characterisation of the thermophysical properties of building elements from short and seasonal-independent in-situ surveys, overcoming some of the limitations of current methods for the estimation of U-values.

Virginia has an MRes in Energy Demand Studies (UCL, UK) and a BSc in Building Engineering (University of Florence, Italy).
Research Themes
Research Summary

As part of her post-doctoral fellowship, Virginia is currently working on the development of a novel method for the characterisation of whole-building heat transfer, titled “Bayesian Building Physics: The Rapid Characterisation of Dynamic Building Heat Loss”.

Virginia has expertise in developing advanced physically informed data analysis techniques (e.g., using Bayesian statistics) for the characterisation of buildings’ performance. She’s also experienced in designing and undertaking long-term monitoring campaigns, and the relative data collection and management process.

Virginia has a keen interest in energy demand reduction in the built environment and sustainable design, both at the urban and building level.

Teaching Summary
Virginia teaches on the Engineering & Architectural Design MEng, co-leading the Building Physics & Energy module. Virginia also co-designed and co-delivers the Fundamentals of Building Physics course, a 4-week-long introduction to building physics for post-graduate students on the Environmental Design and Engineering MSc and Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc.
