Mike Kim holds a PhD (2012) from the University of Toronto, and was previously an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California Berkeley (Industrial Engineering and Operations Research) and the National University of Singapore Business School (Decision Sciences) from 2012-2014.

His research focuses on the interplay between statistical learning (i.e. learning from data) and dynamic optimization (i.e. making adaptive decisions), with applications to problems that arise in operations research, business analytics, and maintenance and reliability. His work has appeared in journals such as Operations Research and Management Science.

Mike is the director of the Centre for Maintenance Optimization and Reliability Engineering (C-MORE), which focuses on real-world research in engineering asset management.

Liam (William) O’Brien, Ph.D., P.Eng. is an associate professor for Carleton University’s Architectural Conservation and Sustainability Engineering program and the principal investigator of the Human Building Interaction Lab. The HBI Lab includes a team of over 10 researchers with diverse backgrounds in civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering, architecture, and psychology, who focus on design and control of energy-efficient buildings, with a specialization in occupant behaviour. Prof. O’Brien has worked with approximately twenty industry and government partners and raised over $2-million in the past five years. He has authored or co-authored over one hundred and twenty peer-reviewed publications and co-edited two books on net-zero energy buildings and occupant research methods. His graduates are professors and researchers in government laboratories and industry R&D departments. He has a wide network of research collaborations due to leadership positions on three International Energy Agency Tasks and three NSERC Strategic Research Networks. Prof. O’Brien is currently the Operating Agent for the five-year, 100-researcher International Energy Agency Annex 79, titled “Occupant-centric building design and operation”. He is heavily involved in the building design and research community, including serving as Past President of the Canadian Chapter of the International Building Performance Simulation Association and Faculty Advisor for ASHRAE. He has chaired two academic conferences, facilitated educational workshops, and given numerous keynote and plenary talks. He has won several prestigious awards including the Carleton Research Achievement Award, Ontario Building Envelope Council Rising Star Award, the Ontario Early Researcher Award, and the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) Outstanding Young Contributor Award.
