Biography

Naomi has been involved in environmental building projects in various different roles since 2003. Alongside her studies she now works part time on the certification of Passivhaus building projects with Will South at Etude (passivhaus.etude.uk, formally as part of Cocreate), where she also undertakes moisture monitoring of building fabric in energy retrofits, including EnerPHit projects. She also contributes to the UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings Technical Working Group on measuring and modelling moisture in buildings (www.ukcmb.org).

Naomi’s research is on heat and moisture transfer through solid brick walls and the impacts of internal wall insulation. She combines high resolution in-wall temperature and humidity measurements from real building projects with numerical simulations to attempt to characterise solid brick walls, and to understand the impacts of uncertainty in the material properties of walls with and without internal wall insulation.
