Kevin J. Kircher

Thanks for stopping by! I’m Kevin (@kevinkircher), an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue. I did a postdoc at MIT with Steven Leeb in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Leslie Norford in Building Technology.

I work on control, optimization and machine learning methods for energy systems in buildings, focusing on their interactions with the power grid. I’m particularly interested in new technologies for efficient electric heating.
