My research focuses on climate adaptation and urban resilience, in particular thermal and air quality conditions of buildings and neighborhoods, occupant behavior, and green infrastructure, with emphasis on passive strategies for the built environment. In my work, I adopt a social-ecological systems view to explore human-environment interactions from a data-driven perspective, utilizing field data with sensing equipment and interviews, building simulation, as well as information visualization through statistical analysis and GIS, with the objective of understanding how to improve conditions in vulnerable settings.

CUSSH: Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health

As a Research Fellow at UCL, I am actively involved in the CUSSH project. CUSSH is an international multi-year effort that aims at helping cities around the world to achieve population health and environmental sustainability. My role within CUSSH includes the development and application of models to assess the impact on environmental parameters and support policy decision-making.

ClimaCare: Climate Resilience of Care Settings 

I am also involved in the ClimaCare project. ClimaCare is a study of the overheating risks of care settings across England, aiming to adapt the settings to climate change using environmental monitoring, building simulation data, and resident and staff surveys.
