Stephanie Gauthier is a lecturer in Energy and Buildings within the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment. Her degree and diploma were in Architecture followed by an MSc in Environmental Design and Engineering from UCL. Her PhD developed a new method to assess human thermal comfort using ubiquitous sensors, and introduced an extended model of behavioural responses to cold thermal discomfort.

Stephanie has over eight years of consultancy experience mostly focused in building and infrastructure, working at Arup, HOK, Atkins and ADPi. As an architect and project manager in multi-disciplinary design teams, she has collaborated on schemes in Abu Dhabi, UK, France and China; including the Oriental Art Center in Shanghai, the King Alfred Development in association with Gehry Partners, BSkyB broadcast center in London and Abu Dhabi National Stadium.
