Prof Michael Davies profile picture
  • Professor of Building Physics and the Environment
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

I am Professor of Building Physics and Environment at the UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering (IEDE) within The Bartlett, UCL’s global faculty of the built environment. I am also a member of the UK Climate Change Committee.

For over a decade I have led an extensive programme of research, founded on intimate collaboration with researchers from health and other disciplines, which has sought to understand the complex relationship between the built environment and human well-being. 

Through such transdisciplinary research, a highly productive, multi-skilled team has been developed which has sought innovation and stakeholder participation in responding to the world’s urban health challenges. We have pioneered methods developments, specifically in the modelling of health impacts and in the application of system dynamics approaches to the co-generation of research in this field. We have helped articulate the multiple underpinning connections and opportunities for healthy sustainable development.

Teaching Summary

I currently lead the 'Energy Context' module which forms part of the Environmental Design and Engineering MSc course.  I also act as supervisor to a body of EngD and PhD students.
