My research focusses on ventilation in occupied homes. Adequate ventilation is essential for good indoor air quality, but too much ventilation increases the energy required to keep a building warm in the winter. My research has studied several dwellings in detail and has focussed on measurement of ventilation rate in occupied homes, factors affecting adequacy of ventilation and how technical and social factors combine in influencing ventilation rates.
Prior to joining LoLo, I worked at the National Physical Laboratory working on the quantification of atmospheric emissions of gases from industrial processes. I graduated from Durham University with a Master’s degree in Physics in 2013.
