Dr Ianakiev is a Professor in Sustainable Energy Systems at School of Architecture, Design and Built Environment. He teaches Engineering Maths and Individual Project modules to undergraduate and Advanced Construction Materials and Finite Element Method modules to Postgraduate Civil Engineering students. At present, Professor Ianakiev is leading Nottingham Trent University participation in the REMOURBAN H2020 Smart Cities and Communities project (2015-2020). The project aims at the development and validation in three lighthouse cities (Nottingham, Valladolid, Eskisehir) of a sustainable urban regeneration model that leverages the convergence area of the energy, mobility and ICT sectors in order to accelerate the deployment of innovative technologies to significantly increase energy efficiency, improve sustainability of urban transport and reduce gas emissions in urban areas. He is the Principal Investigator in H2020 Marie Curie Actions zEPHYR project - Towards a more efficient exploitation of on-shore and urban wind energy resources. The project will look into developing more optimal means of arranging a cluster of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) in an urban environment (such as urban rooftops) and integrating them into the existing structures. Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) are seen as the optimal option for the urban environment due to their lower noise emissions and their adaptability for varying wind directions, which are typical in the built environment. VAWTs do not need to be controlled into the wind direction to be effective, which is a key advantage considering the unsteady dynamics of urban wind flow.
