Dr. Ciara Ahern

What is your research area? Building Stock Modelling What attracted you to working with the ERBE CDT? It is an excellent programme that attracts excellent students Where do you see the significance of this research? The long lifespans of buildings and infrastructures mean there are significant risks of undesirable sub-optimal or partial refurbishments being ‘locked-in’, […]
