Alan Kabanshi is an associate professor of energy systems at the department of building engineering, energy systems and sustainability science. His research is centers around energy in the built environment and currently focuses on resource-efficient ventilation processes in building energy efficiency. Rudimentary, the goal has been to explore alternative air distribution and ventilation strategies that promote thermal comfort, good air quality and occupant health at a reduced energy use. Kabanshi also conducts research on cognitive psychology of climate change, occupant energy related behavior, energy efficiency and sustainable built environments. He has a strong national and international network and visibility as well as a very good record of scientific collaboration and publication. He is the 2020 recipient of the Royal Skyttean Society prize for younger researcher at the University of Gävle.
