Kara Freihoefer Presents at Greenbuild on Research advancing Health and Wellbeing
HGA Design Researcher Kara Freihoefer, Ph.D. joins a panel of experts presenting at Greenbuild International Conference & Expo in Boston on November 10 at 9:30 a.m. The session titled "From Lab to Workplace: Research Advancing Health & Wellbeing" brings together four experts from industry and academia who are deeply engaged in health and wellbeing research. They will share research frameworks and new findings that offer the potential to revolutionize how we create, operate and monitor the impacts of healthy and productive environments. They will discuss current approaches to laboratory studies linking health risks and indoor environments; quantitative and qualitative post-occupancy evaluation (POE) methods; and recent innovations using mobile and wearable sensing devices.
Kara will demonstrate on-site field studies by HGA using focus groups, “shadowing” occupants, time and motion studies, and mobile iPad apps that enable fast data collection.
