“DECISION SUPPORT TOOL FOR DESIGNING HYBRID TES MATERIALS FOR CONSTRUCTION APPLICATIONS”
Chrysa Politi holds a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the School of Mechanical Engineering of the National Technical University in Athens. While holding a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.Sc. specialization in energy and sustainability engineering, her PhD research is focused on buildings energy optimisation by incorporating form-stable phase change materials, with the utilisation of deep learning algorithms. Her competencies include analytical thinking, teamwork, results-orientation, communication and eagerness to take on challenging projects.
Chrysa is an active member of the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE) and a Certified Lead Auditor in ISO 14001:2015, ISO 9001:2015 and Customer Service by TÜV HELLAS – TÜV NORD.
Since 2018, she is a Junior Researcher at the Raw Materials Exploitation & Sustainable Energy Solutions Research Group Laboratory of Metallurgy, School of Mining and Metallurgical Engineering at the same university. She has participated in EU funded H2020 research and innovation projects including SABINA and PVADAPT related to increasing RES penetration by exploiting synergies between electrical flexibility and the thermal inertia of buildings as well as combining passive and sustainable components to produce prefabricated BIPV modules. In addition, she participated in CEF PSA i.e. FPC4Consumers and IDACS dedicated to comparing fuel prices under a common unit and collecting data of recharging/refueling points for alternative fuels. Currently, she is involved in several projects (Frontsh1p, Mozart, SEC4TD) related to all the stages of Life Cycle Assessment, including Environmental and Social Impacts.
Keen researcher, Chrysa has attended several international professional and scholarly meetings among which is the Summer School TOP STARS 2019 hosted by the Department of Industrial Engineering University of Trento in focusing on EIT Raw Materials and supported by the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS).
