Senior Lecturer, School of Architecture and Built Environment, The University of Adelaide

Ehsan is an advocate for the application of architectural sciences in place making practice. He joined the School of Architecture and Built Environment after completing post-doc 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).
Ehsan is a member of the Research Unit for Building and Environment 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
