Professor Darren Robinson is jointly appointed as Chair in Architectural and Urban Sciences at the Sheffield School of Architecture [80%] and as Chair in Building and Urban Physics at the University of Nottingham’s Faculty of Engineering [20%]. His personal research activities lie at the intersection between social physics (people), building physics (buildings) and urban physics (city): people • buildings • city. In particular, in urban scale energy and environmental performance simulation with a view to designing more sustainable urban forms; the modelling of inhabitants' comfort and behaviours; the convergence between these two in the form of detailed urban energy microsimulation software.
