She is currently main supervisor for 3 PhD candidates and 3 postdoctoral researchers.

Fields of competence

She is mainly working with research and innovation on smart cities and neighbourhoods, aiming to promote the role of architectural and urban design in smart, energy-efficient, climate-resilient cities (e.g. EERA Joint Programme Smart Cities, FP7-funded «ZenN Near zero energy neighbourhoods» and RAMSES «Climate change adaptation, mitigation and sustainable development in cities», and IEA SHC Task 51 «Solar energy in urban planning»). She leads the Norwegian EU-shadow group on Energy-Efficient Buildings and Smart Cities and Communities, and a corresponding network at NTNU.


She has an MSc in Architectural Engineering from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, a PhD in Building Technology and a postdoctoral degree on education for environment-friendly architecture from NTNU.
