Tadj Oreszczyn FCIBSE MInstE, PhD, CEng is the Director of The
Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources (BSEER) and Professor of Energy and Environment at the UCL Energy Institute. Prior to
becoming the Director of BSEER in August 2014, Tadj was the founding Director
of the UCL Energy Institute. Tadj is also the Director of the RCUK Centre for Energy Epidemiology (CEE) based at the UCL Energy Institute. This centre undertakes research to help the UK reduce it's energy demand in buildings and transport and is one of six government funded research centres in energy demand. The centre is currently leading the establishment of an international Energy Agency Annex (70) in building energy epidemiology.
Before becoming Professor, Tadj was the Director of the Energy
Design Advice Scheme (EDAS) regional office based at the Bartlett, UCL.
Subsequently, Tadj was Head of the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies for 7
years, and for 4 years, Vice Dean Research for the Bartlett Faculty of the

Tadj is a Fellow and a Vice President of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and sits on the CIBSE Board. Tadj is a member of the Advisory Board of the National Energy
Foundation, a member of the NHBC Expert Panel, and a member of EDGE an
inter-institutional ginger group involving CIBSE, ICE, RIBA, IStructE and the
RICS which seeks to promote interdisciplinary co-operation between construction
professionals. Previously Tadj was a member of the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC, now BEIS) Scientific Advisory Group and has advised the Energy Efficiency Deployment Office at DECC.
Tadj has for 34 years
undertaken energy and building research with a particular focus around the
performance gap between theory and practice and the unintended consequences
(health, comfort, etc.) of building energy efficiency. His first degree was in
Applied Physics followed by a PhD in Solar Energy.
Tadj has been involved
in over 170 research publications. He was invited to: give evidence to the
House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee on Energy Efficiency, co-author two papers for the special issues of the Lancet on Energy and Health and
prepare three papers for a State of Science Review for the Office of Science
and Innovation. Tadj has provided research support for the development of the
English and Welsh Building Regulations. He has presented at invited public and
academic lectures at the Royal Society and the Royal Institution.
Tadj Oreszczyn teaches on the Environmental Design and Engineering MSc course at the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies and the Masters of Research course in Energy Demand Studies run by the UCL Energy Institute.
