The Munib and Angela Masri Institute of Energy and Natural Resources hosted Professor Arsen Melikov, in a talk titled " Validity of CO2-based Ventilation Design and Control" on December 17, 2019 at the American University of Beirut. Prof. Melikov is leading the advanced air distribution and microenvironment research at the International Centre for Indoor Environment and Energy, at the Technical University of Denmark. His teaching and research areas cover advanced air distribution in rooms and vehicle compartments, airborne cross-infection, impact of indoor environment on people's health, comfort and performance, personally controlled environment, heat and mass transfer, and indoor climate measurements and instruments. The results of his research are included in engineering handbooks and guidelines as well as International, European and national standards. New HVAC technologies and measuring instruments have been developed based on his collaboration with industry. He is a member of four societies of HVAC engineers and has been a member of national and international technical and standardization committees. He has organized and chaired international conferences, symposiums, seminars, and workshops and is a member of editorial and review boards of numerous international journals.
Prof. Melikov has received numerous awards, including the Rydberg Gould Medal of the Scandinavian Federation of Heating, Ventilation, and Sanitary Engineering Associations in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, and the Medal for long-standing contribution to the field of environmental engineering of the Czech Society of Environmental Engineering (Czech Republic). He is fellow of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and fellow of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ). He is also an honorary member of the Society of Heating, Air Conditioning, and Sanitary Engineers of Japan (SHASE) and of the Bulgarian Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (BULSHRAE).
