Dr Ehsan Sharifi
PhD in Architecture – Applied Science (UniSA)
B. Architectural Engineering (UT); M. Architecture (UT); M. Sustainable Design (UniSA)
Ehsan is an advocate for the application of architectural sciences in practice. He joined the School of Architecture and Built Environment after completing three post-doc Research Associate positions at UniSA (Cooling Capacity of Green Infrastructures; School of ITMS), UNSW (Urban Cooling Guidelines; School of Built Environment) and the University of Adelaide (Urban Wind Engineering and Comfort; School of Mechanical Engineering). His PhD was part of a CRC for Low Carbon Living project on Urban Microclimates of Australian Cities (RP 2005; 2012-2015).
Ehsan is a member of Sustainable Built Environment research group with research interests including:
• Urban microclimates and the urban heat island effect
• Quality of public space and public life
• Outdoor thermal-wind comfort
• Cultural and historical responses to thermal discomfort
• Environmental assessment of buildings and urban precincts and passive design
• Low carbon urban living, urban greening and climate change adaptation
✓ Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) — email supervisor to discuss availability.
