Centre for Energy and the Design of Environments doctoral students
Our doctoral students are working with our academic staff to carry out research across the remit of the Centre for Energy and the Design of Environments.
Our doctoral (PhD) students are:
- Badr Alotaibi
Badr's research aims to establish a more rigorous methodology to evaluate inpatient thermal comfort level in hospitals in hot climates.
- Bashar Al Shawa
Bashar's research aims to configure building energy codes to counter projected growth of the built environment and ensure that carbon-reduction targets of the sector are achieved.
- Abdulla Alnuaimi
Abdulla's research aims to reduce the over-cooling of buildings in warm regions.
- Petros Ampatzidis
Petros' research is on green and blue space in the urban environment as a climate change mitigation strategy.
- Berrak Balci
Berrak's research aims to develop a tool to evaluate climate-adaptive shading solutions.
- Rana Elnaklah
Rana's research aims to investigate the impact of indoor environmental quality of certified-green office buildings on occupants' work performance.
- Sedi Hematpoori Farokhy Sedi's research aims to develop a cost-effective air-quality monitoring (AQM) sensors and networks of sensors to accurately deliver reliable real-time data of the three pollutants of current interest (NO2, O3, Particulate Matter).
- Caroline Hughes
- Yasser Ibrahim Ibrahim
- Noorullah Kuchai
- Marta Leskard
Marta's research project is to validate the viability of using a highly hygroscopic construction material, hemp-lime concrete, to achieve passive or low energy moisture control in museum storage buildings.
- Elisabetta Maria Patane
- Rachel Mitchell
- Shaghayegh Mohammad
- Matt Roberts Matt's research focuses on how life-cycle thinking is used during the building design process to ensure design decisions assist in the creation of a net-zero built environment.
- Zhenzhou Weng
Weng's research focuses on the application of interactive visualisations in the education of building physics and environmental design for architects.
- Amber Wismayer
- Carlos Zepeda Gil
