Aurore WurtzPhD Student

MINES ParisTech

Having graduated from INSA Strasbourg in 2019 in the climate and energy engineering specialty, Aurore Wurtz joined the Eco-design and Building Thermal engineering (ETB) team at the Centre for Energy Efficiency of Systems (CES) at MINES ParisTech. Her thesis concerns the study of a multi-criterion environmental optimisation method at the scale of building blocks. She is working on a decision support process for eco-design with the aim of reducing the cost and environmental impacts of neighbourhoods, in particular, their CO2 emissions over the entire life cycle.
