David Mwale Ogoli, Ph.D, teaches at the undergraduate and graduate level themes on building control systems, namely: sustainable & energy-efficiency in buildings, passive solar & active systems, architectural lighting and architectural acoustics. His academic interests were initially developed in East Africa where he taught building science at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in Nairobi, Kenya. Prior to teaching at CBU, Dr. Ogoli has taught at the University of Florida, Judson University, and the University of Nairobi.

He has widely published professional papers in many peer-reviewed journals on the theme of building control systems. During his studies at the University of Cambridge, he interacted with the major authorities on this subject at the Passive and Low Energy Conference held in July 1994 in Israel. They included the late Jeffrey Cook from Arizona and UCLA’s Baruch Givoni, author and developer of the building bio-climatic chart (Psychrometric chart). Dr. Ogoli interacts with leaders in this area including the renowned author and emeritus professor John Reynolds (co-author of Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings). He pursues research activities as a support to his primary responsibility of teaching.

Alongside his teaching and research activities, Dr. Ogoli engages in professional practice. He holds an active professional license as a registered architect in Kenya where there are many projects he previously designed and/or participated in. They included a wide diversity: religious, commercial, institutional and residential. He is an Associate member of the American Institute of Architects, and a full member of the Society of Building Science Educators and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers.
