Biography

Dr Anna Mavrogianni is a Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Building and Urban Design at the Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering (IEDE) at the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, UCL. She is an expert in indoor environmental quality, building energy retrofit and climate change adaptation of the built environment sector, with a focus on overheating and heatwave vulnerability at the building and urban scale. Anna trained as an architect engineer specialising in building physics and environmental design at the School of Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens and the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, UCL and has several years of experience in architectural design and environmental consultancy. Within the context of her PhD, she developed a methodological framework that quantifies the effect of London’s urban heat island on domestic space heating demand, indoor overheating and heat-related health risk, as part of the EPSRC-funded project 'The development of a Local Urban Climate model and its application to the Intelligent Development of cities' (LUCID). The outcomes of this work informed the Greater London Authority's (GLA) Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and the UK Government's Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA): Built Environment Sector Report.

Anna was the academic Principal Investigator in the 'Seasonal Health, Ageing and Resilience in Urban Populations and Environments' (SHARPER) project funded by NERC and the Arup Global Research Challenge, and is currently a Co-Investigator in the NIHR-funded  Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Environmental Change and Health, Theme 2: Sustainable Cities and the ESPRC-funded 'Airport Capacity Consequences Leveraging Aviation Integrated Modelling' (ACCLAIM) project. She regularly advises Government Departments, the GLA and individual Local Authorities on ways to improve the climate resilience of urban environments. She has published more than 60 peer-reviewed articles to date and has contributed to several book chapters, reports and evaluations. She was a contributing author in the 'Investigation into Overheating in Buildings' report for DCLG, the 'Defining Overheating in Buildings' detailed evidence review for the Zero Carbon Hub and the Government’s upcoming 2017 CCRA report. She is a Board Member of the International Building Performance Simulation Association-England (IBPSA-England), a Member of the UK Indoor Environments Group (UKIEG) and a Royal Society of Arts (RSA) Fellow.

Research Summary
Anna's research interests include climate responsive architecture and urban design; indoor environmental quality and associated health risks; the impact of urban heat islands and climate change on energy use, thermal comfort and health; the adaptation of the built environment to a warming climate; energy efficient retrofit technologies; building performance simulation and optimisation; building stock energy use modelling; fuel poverty; embodied energy and carbon in building construction; sustainable construction materials.

Anna was the academic Principal Investigator in the 'Seasonal Health, Ageing and Resilience in Urban Populations and Environments' (SHARPER) project funded by NERC and the Arup Global Research Challenge, and is currently a Co-Investigator in the NIHR-funded  Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Environmental Change and Health, Theme 2: Sustainable Cities and the ESPRC-funded 'Airport Capacity Consequences Leveraging Aviation Integrated Modelling' (ACCLAIM) project.

In the past, Anna contributed to the following projects:

Teaching Summary

Anna is the Deputy Course Director of the new MSc in Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings (starting September 2017) at the Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering (IEDE) and the module leader for BENVGHB2: Integrated Building Design for Health, Comfort and Wellbeing. This module introduces the concept of integrated building design (and associated operational aspects) within the context of enhancing health, wellbeing and comfort in buildings. It is also an introduction to the fundamentals of design and operational strategies for addressing the factors which affect health, wellbeing and comfort in buildings. She is also responsible for the optional module BENVGHB4: Designing Inclusive Places, which introduces the notion of vulnerability and of inclusive design within the context of health and wellbeing in buildings and at the neighbourhood scale, and discusses these notions from the perspective of various people-related factors (e.g. depending on age, health/wellbeing conditions, socioeconomic status and social exclusion, etc.), and within relevant building types.

From 2012 to 2016 Anna acted as the Deputy Course Director for the MSc in Environmental Design and Engineering, where she was module leader for BENVGEE7: Methods of Environmental Analysis from 2011 to 2016. This multidisciplinary module deals with the principles and practice of building environmental analysis and the methods of assessing the environmental performance of existing and proposed buildings and their attendant services. The module aims to introduce MSc students to the principles, methods and practice of built environment research and the skill set required to complete a research project, as well as to provide practical engagement in research and enhanced critical judgement.

Further to teaching at the MSc level, Anna supervises a number of students at postgraduate level across the Bartlett Faculty. This includes supervision of MSc dissertations for the MSc in Environmental Design and Engineering at IEDE, Year 5 theses for the MArch program at the Bartlett School of Architecture and MRes theses at the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Energy Demand Reduction at the UCL Energy Institute. At doctoral level, she supervises several PhD and EngD students across UCL, at IEDE, the Bartlett School of Architecture, the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Energy Demand Reduction and the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Virtual Environments, Imaging and Visualisations (VEIV). She is currently also an external supervisor at doctoral level at the University of Reading.

Anna holds a Professional Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education from the Institute of Education, UCL and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
