Lab Director


My name is Ehsan Kamel, director of the Energy and Green Technologies Laboratory (EnTech Lab) at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT). I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Energy Management at the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences (CoECS). I obtained my Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 2017, and my research is focused on building energy modeling (BEM), the application of building information modeling (BIM) in BEM, energy-smart homes, and building energy retrofit. I also have a background in building science, building enclosure design, and seismic engineering, with an emphasis on the seismic behavior of reinforced lightweight concrete.
