Dima Albadra is a lecturer and researcher with background in architecture, and passive low-energy design. Her most recent research is in the fields of emergency architecture, thermal comfort, and participatory design.
Dima is the winner of the RIBA President’s Award for Research 2017: Housing Category, and the overall and category winner of EPSRC Science Photo Competition 2019.
Her main research interest and work so far lie in environmental and sustainable architecture. She is also interested in the influence of architecture and urban design on health and wellbeing; and how the design of the built environment affect behaviour and can support positive change. She is particularly interested in human-centred approaches to sustainable architecture and urban design - through involving the human and socio-cultural perspective in all the different elements of her research.
