Biography

Caroline Karmann is a PostDoctoral Researcher at the Laboratory of Integrated Performance in Design (LIPID) in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL). Caroline is interested in architecture and daylight in spaces, and in how our built environments affect our well-being. Her current research lies in the gap between visual comfort and visual interests based on the subjective and behavioral responses of occupants. Caroline holds PhD in Building Science in Architecture from UC Berkeley and a dual Master’s degree in Architecture and Energy Engineering from INSA Strasbourg. Her doctoral project was devoted to indoor environmental quality in buildings using radiant conditioning systems. She conducted full-scale laboratory experiments and fields studies in 20 buildings. Her work was presented in multiple conferences including the ASHRAE conference, Windsor and PLEA, where she won Best Paper Award in 2018. Caroline has five years of professional experience in the field of climate responsive building design. She worked as a consultant for daylight and energy at Transsolar (Stuttgart), where she specialized in building performance simulation, in particular daylighting simulation. Following her PhD, she worked for one year at Arup (London), where she conducted research on city resilience, and supported research activities through workshop facilitation and strategic planning.
