Prof. Arianna Brambilla
Arianna Brambilla is an Associate Professor in Architecture, with a PhD in Building Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano. Arianna’s background merges the fields of architecture, construction, building physics, and engineering, with special expertise sitting at the nexus of the built environment and sustainability. Arianna’s research has a particular focus on building envelope performance – or the building’s ‘climate control’ provided by its outer shell. She considers the impact of building envelopes on our comfort, as well as the outdoor microclimate and the broader ecosystem.
Dr. Jueming Bing
Jueming Bing is a Postdoctoral researcher at the School of Physics, at the University of Sydney. He was awarded PhDin Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in 2020 and awarded a Bachelor of Engineering in renewable energy systems from The Australian National University with First Class Honours in 2016. His research focuses on the development of new-generation thin-film perovskite-based solar cells, with a particular emphasis on their stability, durability, encapsulation strategies, and application for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
Ellena Black received her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Mathematics, and Honours in Applied Mathematics, at the University of Auckland. She is a current Ph.D. student in the School of Chemistry at the University of Sydney, in Peter Gill’s group, working on developing ways to improve the efficiency of electronic density calculations.
