I came here after doing a Masters of Architecture and working for 3 years on sustainable building projects. There I learned that the most compelling built environment solutions often require a smart mix of new and old. In our research group, we use vetted techniques (e.g.,building science knowledge) with new tools (e.g., environmental sensors) and nuanced reasoning to move the needle forward on occupant health and wellbeing.
In my PhD research and beyond I want to help the occupants of buildings have better health and learning outcomes. I am working with survey data from social housing occupants and conducting a review of the evidence basis for IEQ LEED credits in schools.
