If you are from a developing or least developed country and you care about the impact of climate change on your community, we have an exciting multi-disciplinary PhD opportunity at Cardiff University funded by Vice Chancellor's International Studentship scheme.

Buildings account for about one third of greenhouse gas emissions globally: exacerbated by poor maintenance, building systems inefficiencies and other human activities. Additionally, poorly maintained buildings become increasingly vulnerable to damage caused by the increasing severity of climate change hence becoming even more inefficient in managing energy, waste and quality of overall building. Poorly maintained buildings also pose safety risks to residents (e.g. fire). Multi-occupancy adds further complexity on decision making about occupant comfort and activities.

This PhD project is supervised by academics from Schools of Computer Science, Architecture, Engineering and Psychology, and would focus on the 3-way interaction between humans, the embedded systems in a building (e.g. IoT), and their digital twins (BIM), where, challenges remain to ensure this interaction is reliable (secure and private), efficient (enabling strong linkage between data), interactive (informative and responsive) and effective. Challenges that are magnified in the context of less developed countries while corresponding opportunities for enhancement are great. We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic researcher from least developed countries to join us in Cardiff to explore and address some of these challenges in the community.
