Timur Dogan is an architect, building scientist, and educator. His research expertise is in daylighting, energy modeling, passive climate control strategies, and performance driven design workflows in both urban and architectural scale. His work empowers non-specialized architects and urban designers to optimize their design proposals regarding their energy demand and supply, comfort, and livability. To date, he has authored and coauthored several books, journal papers, and peer reviewed scientific articles.

Prior to joining Cornell in 2015, Dogan was a member of the Sustainable Design Lab at MIT and Harvard where his research was supported by an MIT Presidential Fellowship, Transsolar Energietechnik GmbH, and the German Academic Exchange Service-DAAD. In practice, Dogan worked for KSP Architekten, Wandel Hoefer Lorch Architekten, Transsolar, and recently started his own practice.

Dogan holds a Master in Design Studies from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Dipl. Ing. in architecture with distinction from the Technical University Darmstadt, where he was a fellow of the German National Academic Foundation.
