Research

In the past eight years, Niko has been working in the field of lighting and daylighting, mixing technical and observed-based evaluation. He blends his background in engineering with principles and methods from the domains of environmental psychology and architecture.

His research focuses on the role of user in driving energy saving for integrated daylighting and electric lighting solutions, targeting mainly at the role of controls.

He participated in the International Energy Agency (IEA) SHC Task 50 and he is currently leading Subtask D of IEA SHC Task 61 / EBC Annex 77 together with Prof Werner Osterhaus, Aarhus University. He recently co-authored the book "Daylighting and lighting under a nordic sky", available in most of online book shops.
