Dr. Talal Salem has been, from Jan 2007 to Sept 2008, a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Building Sciences of the National School of the State Public Works (ENTPE) and at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), France. He was conducting research works on the integration of solar thermal energy and active energy storage in buildings, studying their impact on urban microclimate and thermal comfort. He was also working on the setting of an experimental tool for the characterization of building envelope, and testing new control strategies for hybrid ventilation.
For two years, he was involved in teaching undergraduate courses and an advisor for Senior Projects at the Civil Engineering Department of ENTPE, France.
In September 2008, he joined the teaching staff of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at NDU-Louaize where he is an Associate Professor.
His research interests include sustainable building design, energy conservation for buildings, solar energy integration, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality.
