M. Arch, B.Sc
Geraldine Quek is currently developing her Ph.D. thesis at the Laboratory of Integrated Performance in Design (LIPID) at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) while enrolled in the Doctoral Program in Architecture and Sciences of the City (EDAR). Geraldine obtained her B.Sc and M.Arch with distinction in the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), where she also worked as a research assistant in the Design for Climate and Comfort Lab, studying regional daylighting preferences in the tropics to establish daylighting and visual comfort standards in Singapore with Dr. Alstan Jakubiec. She has since published papers on the calibration and validation of daylighting simulation models based on short-term visits in offices and residential buildings and relating annual illuminance data to subjective user satisfaction of daylight. Geraldine has also won several awards throughout her early academic career, including an Academic Excellence Award and she was recently awarded the prestigious SUTD Graduate Merit Scholarship. Geraldine is currently developing her Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of Prof. Marilyne Andersen and Dr. Jan Wienold. Her Ph.D. thesis will investigate and push the boundaries of visual comfort prediction of occupants in indoor daylit environments.
