Dr Cenk Kocer is a senior researcher with over 18 years experience in the area of Vacuum Insulated Glazing (VIG). His research focus is the design, manufacture, and quality/durability of the VIG window system. Using experimental and numerical (such as finite element analysis) methods, he is involved in the detailed study of the thermal and mechanical properties of VIG and other thermally insulating technologies.

Franz Paschke (27 years old) was born in Frankfurt am Main and studied civil engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt (TUD), with a focus on structural engineering. In 2018 he worked in the Institute of Structural Mechanics and Design at the TUD dealing with the monitoring of Vacuum Insulated Glazing’s (VIG) that are installed in a building. In December 2018 he started work in the Vacuum Insulated Energy-Efficient Window Technology Hub at The University of Sydney under the supervision of Dr Cenk Kocer.
