Kelsey received an Honours Bachelor of Science in physics from Queen’s. Her research focuses on characterizing the indoor environmental quality and occupant wellbeing in Canadian homes to examine the relationship between the features of the built environment, measured IEQ parameters, occupant comfort/perception and the health and wellbeing of occupants.
This project uses surveys, interviews, and field measurements to characterize the indoor environmental conditions (including light, thermal, acoustic and air-quality) in seniors’ homes, to provide targets for improvement.
This project uses weather and building utility data to determine the actual (rather than theoretical) performance of building retrofits.
