Education 

University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, US, Masters, Building Science

Building Science and technology studies at USC recognize that exemplary buildings are based on responses to the human condition and to natural forces, requiring good judgement and knowledge for the creative use of architectural technology.

Studies are centered around each student’s thesis and are supported by research seminars and electives from architecture, engineering and other related fields. Students are individually guided through their study and thesis by three faculty advisors. The faculty has academic, research and professional practice experience in architecture, civil and structural engineering, environmental control system design, and computer applications. Many papers based on thesis work have been co-authored by faculty and students have been published and/or presented at professional conferences.

The masters thesis submitted was titled "Green Roof Performance in Los Angeles, CA," and was also presented at the 26th international conference on Passive and Low Energy Architecture (PLEA2009) in Quebec.
