Biography

Joseph Amoako-Attah is currently a Lecturer in Liverpool John Mores University. He formally worked as a Lecturer and Building Energy Performance Researcher at the University of West London (UWL), School of Computing and Engineering, Dept. of Civil Engineering and Built Environment. He also worked as a lecturer in School of Architecture Computing & Engineering, University of East London. He has extensive experience in the rail and aluminium industries. Joseph is a chartered engineer and holds membership of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (MCIBSE) and International Building Performance Simulation Association - England (MIBPSA).

Joseph holds a PhD in the Built Environment from University of West London. His PhD research was on “Impact of climate change on newly detached residential buildings in the UK - passive mitigation and adaptation strategies”. Joseph graduated from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana, with an honours degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1994, a masters degree in Civil Engineering from University of East London in 2008, a masters degree in business administration (MBA) from University of Leicester in 2009 and a postgraduate certificate of research from University of West London in 2011.

He has a personal commitment and ability to deliver research informed teaching which enhances undergraduate and postgraduate students’ experience on how to provide thermal comfort and efficient energy use in buildings, through the application of passive design principles and incorporation of appropriate building services. He has a passion for achieving high-impact research in the sustainable building and infrastructure with the view to look up for innovative and creative solutions to problems, in fulfilling the world’s vision of developing sustainable urban environment and buildings. He is also commitment to knowledge transfer and making a difference to global carbon emissions reduction via research and education of all stakeholders.
