Maedot received her BSc from New York University and her PhD from the University of Toronto. Her PhD research focussed on evaluating acoustic comfort in multi-unit residential buildings.
This project evaluates the post-occupancy performance of two multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs): one which was newly constructed to the Passive House standard and one which was retrofit to EnerPhit Standard.
