Stacy Ann Vallis
Division of Urban and Regional Studies | KTH Digital Futures
Stacy Vallis completed her doctoral studies in architecture at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Her doctoral research responded to the risks to public urban safety, posed by natural hazards and explored the applications of geospatial and drone technologies for rapid assessment of contemporary and historic urban centres, to inform the selection of retrofit solutions that generate safer streetscapes.
Stacy’s postdoctoral research will also be driven by overarching themes of public wellbeing, disaster response, and the integration of emerging technologies in urban centres. She will examine human-centred approaches for optimising the development of digital technologies in post-pandemic Sustainable Smart Cities. Her work will provide insights on how digitalisation is being used to enhance public health and well-being through retrofit of the built environment.
Stacy is also passionate about the use of cultural heritage and intergenerational dialogue as tools for addressing many societal challenges.
