Alpha is an architect with a focus on building science and sustainable design. She is currently conducting her doctoral research at the MIT Sustainable Design Lab. She has been developing an early-design approach to promote the design of naturally ventilated buildings, that has been implemented in this web-based platform. The goal is to make easily accessible natural ventilation guidelines available for people who want to make their buildings energy-efficient, and low-carbon.
