Speaker Information

       Siobhan Rockcastle: Siobhan is a researcher exploring topics at the intersection of  architectural design, human perception, environmental dynamics, and building performance. She is in the final stages of her PhD at LIPID Lab at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL). Siobhan earned her professional BA of Arch from Cornell University in 2008 and her SMArchS degree in Building Technology from MIT in 2011. She currently consults on daylight design integration and environmental performance for a number of architectural and urban-scale projects in Switzerland and the US. Siobhan’s research proposes new metrics that predict the impacts of daylight and spatial composition on perception and emotion in architecture.

María Lovísa Ámundadóttir: Maria graduated in 2016 with her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from LIPID lab at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL). Before attending EPFL, she received her MSc in Computational Science and Engineering from ETH Zurich and a BSc in Industrial Engineering from the University of Iceland. Maria’s research explores the evolution of nonvisual light effects over time with respect to changes in intensity, spectral composition and duration of light exposure using mathematical models. This work has led to the development of simulation-based techniques that can inform designers about the effect of lighting on human health and wellbeing in real-life settings.
