Deborah is currently a Research Associate at the Dyson School of Design Engineering. Deborah is currently working on the HOUSE project. The HOUSE (HOme User and Stakeholder Environment) is an interactive tool of elements allowing stakeholders to interact with the elements of their HOUSE.
The HOUSE concept provides a new approach to interaction between a customer and energy solution provider. The project will allow insights into a critical area of technology which is strategically important for UK industry and government and also, affects the daily lives of the majority of UK residents.
Prior to joining Imperial Deborah was Lecturer in Building Physics and Course Director for CIBSE accredited BEng Architectural Environment Engineering, UNNC. Deborah obtained her PhD from the University of Nottingham and her Masters in Advanced Mechanical Engineering from Leicester University, UK.
