"Mapping Personal Thermal Comfort" - 26th November 1-2pm 

22 November 2012

Environmental Sustainability Topic Lunch Presentation by Stephanie Gauthier (UCL Energy Institute.)

Thermal comfort has widespread implications, including health and energy demand, yet little is known about the interrelation between thermal-discomfort responses and physical settings. This research presents a mixed-methods’ framework to measure environmental and physiological variables. One of the key aims is to gather accurate measurements while using ‘discreet’ observatory systems to have minimum impact on the occupants’ behaviour.

If you would like to book a place please email greenucl@ucl.ac.uk as spaces will be limited. 

The location of the presentation will be announced nearer the time.
