Faculty of the Professions

Dr Lyrian Daniel is a postdoctoral researcher within the Healthy Cities Research Group, School of Architecture & Built Environment at The University of Adelaide. She was awarded her PhD with the Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence in March 2016. With a background in architectural science, her PhD research sought to understand the thermal behaviours and preferences of households living in low-energy dwellings in Australia.

Her current research spans the architectural science and housing research fields to examine the impacts of Australia’s hidden cold housing phenomenon, incorporating issues of housing stress, energy poverty, housing conditions and national performance standards.

She is the most recent recipient of the Federal Ministers Award for Early Career Housing Researcher from the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute for her work on housing affordability stress and relative material deprivation.
