RESEARCH INTEREST
(Research Area)
  • Area 1: Humane Design/Architecture: Architecture, built environment, human and environment, well being and architecture, and design values My research area revolves around investigating the interaction between humans, architecture and the environment. Architecture affects individuals on a more personal level, it can have a profound impact on its users/occupants. Every aspect of architecture from the design, layout of space and material finishes can contribute towards occupant wellbeing, health, mood, and productivity. How do we address the growing issues of inhumane living/working environments that affect human beings' wellbeing? I emphasize on research focusing on current societal and environmental issues and needs. The role of architecture is to create spaces that meet the needs of users. Design solutions that look into nature as solutions as proven to create a more humane living environment have proven to improve well-being. Thus I am interested in exploring ways in the process of designing a better living/working environment from the viewpoint of a humane design, exploring architectural interventions to accommodate the elements humane design and tapping into nature not only for the resources but also as inspiration. Therefore focusing on design values of place and space from a social and environmental perspective. Area 2: Sustainability in Architecture/Built Environment I am also broadly interested in sustainability in architecture with particular emphasis on Life Cycle Energy Assessment (LCEA) - embodied energy/embodied, carbon emission/operational energy and passive energy efficiency strategies. In particular, my research interests are shaped by the emerging trends of sustainability in multi-storey residential/office building in urban areas-focusing carbon footprint, alternative building materials, and exploring the potential of vertical farming as a means to mitigate urban heat island issues, operational energy and to promote social sustainability. Area 3: Pedagogy, Curriculum Design and Graduate Employability Additionally, I am also keen on pedagogic research- exploring new methods, interventions, and effective approaches in architecture education, particularly in the technical modules. I believe architecture teachers need to follow a unique way because they are not only instructing but essentially involved in the development of the creative potential of the student. Within this area, I am interested in studies/researches exploring graduate employability skills, graduate employability to the changing dynamic in the relationship between HE and the labour market, and the changing role of HE in regulating graduate employability.
