Profile

Peter Moonen studied Civil Engineering at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), and graduated in July 2003 with summa cum laude. After graduation he started working on an interdisciplinary project, which resulted in a dual Ph.D. degree, issued by both the Catholic University of Leuven and the Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands). In 2009-2010, he had the opportunity to do a postdoc at the ETH Zürich (Switzerland). Since the beginning of 2011, he is research scientist at Empa Dübendorf (Switzerland) and lecturer of the courses Building Physics and Urban Physics at ETH Zürich. Since 2013 he also teaches the advanced course Moisture & Durability. In June 2014, Peter was appointed Chair TOTAL at UPPA in France, in charge of the creation and exploitation of an imaging platform dedicated to the oil & gas sector.
Peter’s research activities span various scales, ranging from building materials, over building components, up to the urban microclimate. His research at ETH dealt mainly with the validation of time-resolved turbulent flow simulations based on spatially and temporally-resolved wind tunnel measurements, as well as with the development of new coupling strategies for multi-scale (climate) modelling.
