Dr Edward Barrett
14 Upper Woburn Place
  • Teaching fellow
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

With a background in physics, Edward began in postdoctoral semiconductor research before moving into lighting. Experience building laboratory-based measurement stations proved useful in creating automated software for visual perception experiments. He returned to UCL to help with the relocation to Here East of the Bartlett Lighting Simulator, and with the upgrade of the luminaires and control system. He now works in Building Physics Monitoring at the UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering.

Research Themes
Research Summary

Edward's doctoral and early postdoctoral research focused on cleanroom-based fabrication and characterisation of optoelectronic devices made from organic and inorganic semiconductor materials, first at Imperial College and then at the Optoelectronic Research Centre at Southampton. An interest in mesopic photography of street scenes during his doctoral research led Edward to first join UCL in 2011 on a research project investigating street lighting glare. This was followed by a role at the Nanoscience Centre at Cambridge, designing photomasks and fabricating test surfaces with a variety of pillar, ridge, and fan-like microstructures, along with surfaces with hydrophobicity patterned on the micron scale.

Recent work has looked at the performance gap between design and operation in the built environment.

Teaching Summary

Edward is a Teaching Fellow in Building Physics Monitoring on the Engineering & Architectural Design MEng.

He is currently providing maternity cover as a course director on the Light and Lighting MSc.
