I am an ESD consultant and sustainable housing researcher, currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Melbourne, investigating energy efficiency in Australia's volume built housing sector. I completed my Architecture degree in 2004, and became an accredited thermal performance assessor (i.e. house energy rater) in 2005. After working in architectural and ESD consulting practices I returned to study, completing a Master of Environment in 2016, and commencing my PhD in 2017. I also teach casually in Environmental Building Systems and Design at the university.
