Md Shamim Ahamed, Ph.D.
  • Assistant Professor, Biological and Agricultural Engineering
Research Interests: Thermal Environment Modelling, HVAC Systems, Renewable Energy, Precision Livestock Farming

Dr. Ahamed is interested in the energy-efficient design and operation of controlled environment agricultural (CEA) production facilities, including greenhouse, indoor/vertical farming, aquaponics, dairy and poultry barns, etc. Controlled Environment Engineering Lab focuses on different research topics in CEA, including thermal environment modelling and simulation; design optimization and evaluation of energy-saving techniques for the agricultural built-environment; net-zero energy (NZE) agricultural buildings; digitalization of CEA production systems; automated ongoing commissioning of HVAC systems.  These research efforts aim to ensure the sustainability of CEA production systems through the minimization of energy usage.

The Energy and Efficiency Institute (EEI) at UC Davis is a leading university institution advancing impactful energy and energy efficiency solutions.
