Associate Professor Leena Thomas is a sustainable architecture academic and research expert with experience in Australia and India. Her research and teaching focuses on transforming development and design practices in response to global concerns for climate change and sustainability. Leena’s presentation will focus on her research into workplace and living environments where she has pioneered the use of detailed post-occupancy evaluation to investigate the role of the built environment in delivering energy efficiency, comfort, productivity, health and well-being, and sustainability. Through her research findings Leena argues for the consideration of the social dimension of user experience alongside technical performance and the value of linking public health with planetary health.
