Brief Bio

Dr. Valerio Roberto Maria Lo Verso is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Energy at the Polytechnic University of Turin, Torino, Italy. His research expertise includes both electric lighting and daylighting, carries out field analyses, software simulations, and experimentations with scale models and the sun/sky simulator facility. Further, he worked on design and performance characterization of daylighting systems (transparent, shading, and guidance systems), integration of daylighting and electric lighting for both visual comfort and energy saving purposes. He was granted a post-doc position at National Research Council of Canada (NRCC) in Ottawa to carry out research on green buildings through daylight for the years 2006-2007. He has published more than 50 papers in reputed international journals and confereces. He is an author of the handbook “Guide on daylighting design”, published by the Italian Lighting Association AIDI. He is involved in teaching activities such as courses, workshops, and seminaries. He gives lectures and carries out practical teaching activities relative to the topics of building physics (lighting, acoustics, thermal and IAQ aspects) within courses such as Indoor environment physics. Currently, he has full responsibility of the course “Building Physics” at the Faculty of Architecture at Politecnico di Torino. He also gives numerous lectures in post-degree and masters courses about indoor and outdoor lighting, daylighting, sustainable architecture and planning. He is member of the International Commission on Illumination CIE and of the International Building Performance Simulation Association IBPSA-Italy.
