ABOUT ME

 

Ph.D. Fellow in Sustainable Architecture Discourse and Practice

 

I am a motivated, creative and critically engaged Ph.D. fellow at Aarhus School of Architecture. My focus on researching sustainable architectural theory and practice builds on a strong foundation of education in sustainable architecture and design for sustainable development.

My passion for research and learning was discovered while on exchange to Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia during my undergraduate studies. After returning home and completing my Bachelors of Architectural Studies at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand I decided I wanted to expand my learning environment. Moving to Italy where I took a year to experience a different culture and appreciate true historical architecture. Finding the masters course - 'Design for Sustainable Development' at Chalmers University of Technology was an ideal fit, combining both my passion for historic architecture and sustainability. 

 

During this time, I realised how complex and overwhelming the field of sustainability, and sustainable architecture is. This led to the initial interest in the subject of my Ph.D. - Theories in Sustainable Architecture. I have a strong interest in understanding how this complex issue can become more digestible and accessible in the hope of making sustainable architecture common practice in the building and design industry.
