Letizia D’Angelo holds a BSc and MSc degree in Building Engineering from Università Politecnica delle Marche (Ancona, Italy) and achieved a high first-class honour with the thesis “Assessment of energy renovation actions to support operation and maintenance of public buildings”. After her degree, in 2017, she completed a successful 5-month traineeship program of the European Commission (Erasmus Plus) in the National University of Ireland. In the same year, she was awarded with a PhD scholarship cofounded by R2M Solution S.p.A in the Department of Civil Engineering at NUI Galway.
Her proposed research aims at combining energy efficiency and optimizing energy consumption in existing building stock and provide a technological solution based on building information modelling (BIM) and Business Process Model to effectively tackling the barriers that prevent the implementation of the EPBD across Europe, especially in achieving near-zero energy buildings.
Main area of activity in R2M:
Letizia is part of the Energy & Sustainability division and he is involved in Energy modelling activities and credit acquisition for the LEED Certification.
Letizia performs also academic research activities in European Project SPHERE in the framework of HORIZON 2020 – Program for Research and Innovation.
