Lecturer in the School of Built Environment, Faculty of Arts Design and Architecture, involved in research and teaching. PhD in architecture and urban microclimates.
Grant activity includes:
PhD in architecture and urban microclimate research with a focus on the effects of facade design on facade surface temperature and outdoor microclimate. Interest in transdisciplinarity and knowledge transfer between science and design. Current research on pedestrian outdoor thermal comfort, the effects of facade design on outdoor microclimate and the application of thermal judgement in architectural design.
