“Funky Matters” (a play with words) is a song/essay about the discoveries as well as the uncertainties of Particle Physics. Funk and jazz structures and rhythms develop on a metal arrangement, with clean singing and choruses to sing along with (lyrics below). #nerdmetal Quantum Prana: Vocals, guitar, bass; lyrics, production Second Order Effects: Keyboards Klas… Read More A new track, “Funky Matters”.

A short and coincise presentation I gave in Trondheim (Norway) on 7.11.19, which summarizes the parametric study reported in the conference paper (see the link below). https://doi.org/10.1088/1755-1315/352/1/012011 Here is the presentation: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/337111301_Parametric_study_for_the_long_term_energetic_performance_of_geothermal_energy_piles
Here you can download the pdf (open access): https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1755-1315/352/1/012011 I will give the talk next week at the 1st Nordic nZEB+ conference in Trondheim, Norway! Abstract: Geothermal energy constitutes an important renewable resource that will become increasingly prominent in future constructions. A common method of extraction and usage consists of installing, inside the foundation piles… Read More Conference paper on geothermal energy now published
Following the Taoist aim at simplicity, I have redesigned the website with a simpler layout, and cleared up all the pages from redundancies. Hopefully now everything is more accessible, go and have a look!
A new paper on the energy efficiency of buildings (here, ice hockey halls) is now published!
