Thesis Title

Mitigating the urban heat island during heatwaves to improve human thermal comfort


Stephanie's primary interests involve researching the impacts of climate and extreme events on urban populations in Australia. For her PhD, she is modelling the effectiveness of cooling infrastructure in cities during heatwaves. The aim of this is to reduce nighttime temperatures, and hence mortality rates during heatwaves.
