NEW DOCTOR

Data-based methodology for studying water and nutrient flows in river catchments

Lea Levi has studied the Sava River Catchment, an area that has previously been missing evaluation of long-term hydro-climatic and nutrient loading changes. The study also compared Sava results and methodologies with other regions in order to address their transferability and generality as well as usability in practice for various mitigation measures.

NEW DOCTOR

Biobased materials can mitigate the climate impact of the construction industry

In his doctoral thesis, Diego Peñaloza has used system analysis tool Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and several "what if"-scenarios to understand the effects that increasing the use of biobased materials would have in the construction sector, more specifically concerning climate impact mitigation. He has also explored the effects on the whole Swedish building stock.

NEW DOCTOR

Addressing the culture of the architectural discipline

Brady Burroughs' doctoral thesis is a queer feminist project, written as a pulp fiction. With over 150 full graphic pages, a more familiar literary language, and various forms of writing, the project takes seriously, in an uncertain, improper and playful way, what is usually deemed unserious within the architectural discipline.
