UCL Energy Institute
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 200 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.
