Dr Carlos Bartesaghi Koc

Lecturer in Landscape Architecture

School of Architecture and Built Environment

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences


Currently, I am a Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at University of Adelaide. Before, I completed my PhD in Planning and Urban Development (UNSW) in 2018, where I analysed the thermal performance of green infrastructure on urban microclimate using remote sensing, spatial econometrics and predictive modelling methods. My research received the inaugural Dean's Award for Outstanding PhD theses in 2019.

I transitioned into academia at UNSW in 2015 as sessional lecturer before starting my post-doctoral research fellowship in 2018. Afterwards, I became lecturer in Architecture (Environment) at Deakin University in 2019. Over the last 13 years I have combined teaching and research positions, consultancy activities and practice-based design in Australia, Peru and Chile.

As an architect, urban designer and climatologist, I am interested in analysing the spatial and temporal dynamics and interactions that occur in the built environment by applying a 'systems thinking' approach. In particular, I focus on performance-based analysis of cities, neighbourhoods, urban precincts, streets and buildings from ecological and holistic point of views. My second research focus is on climate-sensitive and generative+responsive design supported by computational and sensing technologies such as AI, machine learning, IoT and smart sensors.

My research spans across multiple spatial scales, disciplines and topics including urban ecology, remote sensing (spaceborne, airborne and terrestrial), numerical modelling and simulation, spatial data science, GIS, responsive+generative design,  IoT technologies, machine learning & artificial intelligence (AI), algorithm-based design, urban climatology and meteorology, energy efficiency, air quality, and environmental monitoring.
