Michael recently graduated as a PhD in Physics from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia. His thesis focused on discomfort glare in green buildings in sub-tropical climates. He is currently conducting a similar study of Malaysian buildings as part of a BSEEP project to better understand glare in the tropics. At IEN he is currently consulting on daylighting and reviewing the BSEEP Technical Guidelines for Passive and Active Design. He also continues to actively publish and peer review articles on visual comfort and daylight.
