MY GOALS AND MOTIVATIONS
Ankur joined the Commercial Buildings Research Group at NREL in 2019 with a focus on buildings advanced manufacturing and integration science. His work includes facilitating integration of a wide range of energy-efficient strategies during factory production of permanent modular buildings, strategizing the blending of factory information modeling and building information modeling into NREL's building energy modeling capabilities, and accelerating whole-building systems integration in upcoming net-zero energy buildings.

Ankur gained academic and research training on advanced manufacturing, building energy, and urbanism from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); entrepreneurship and economics from courses at Harvard Business School; and architectural and building sciences/technology from Birla Institute of Technology (India). At MIT, he developed advanced manufacturing techniques and digital design-manufacturing tools to quantify and lower material-embodied energy during construction of new multifamily apartments in the United States.
