Malcolm Cook is Professor of Building Performance Analysis at Loughborough University. He is based in the Building Energy Research Group in the School of Civil and Building Engineering and leads their work in the area of ventilation modeling and low energy building design. He obtained his first degree from Manchester University (UK) in Mathematics and completed his PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling of buoyancy-driven natural ventilation at De Montfort University (Leicester, UK). He has worked on research projects funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Department of Health and the European Union. He has completed many consultancy projects for a wide range of clients worldwide which have included design and simulation work for health care buildings, schools and modern library buildings. His work is published in over 70 refereed conference and journal papers and has contributed to awards for innovative building design, including the RIBA presidents gold medal for practice-based architecture (2007), the CIBSE environmental initiative of the year award (2006) and a LEED Gold rated Academic Center for Judson College, IL (2008). Malcolm is a member of the CIBSE Natural Ventilation group, vice-chairman of the CIBSE Building Simulation group and chairman of the England affiliate of the International Building Performance Simulation Association.
