We are very excited to announce that our afternoon keynote will be by Dr. Lindsay Graham from the Center for the Built Environment at the University of California, Berkeley!

Morning Keynote: Introduction to Living Labs


Workshop organizers


In the morning keynote, the workshop organizers will introduce the living lab methodology. We will share the capabilities of a state-of-the-art living lab, the Well Living Lab, and research pursued at the lab, as an example of the research possibilities afforded by this new methodology. We will highlight how insights from living labs can inform innovative applications to improve the health, performance, and well-being of building occupants.

Keynote 2: Measuring Individuals in "Real-World" Environments


Dr. Lindsay Graham, CBE (UC Berkeley)


This talk will illustrate some of the ways in which we can measure individuals in “real-world” environments. Dr. Graham will present examples of how she has done this within her own work in both virtual and physical spaces—and highlight some emergent methodologies within the field. The talk will conclude with discussion of the importance of interdisciplinary work, and ways in which academia and industry support one another in their efforts to better understand the relationship between occupants and the spaces they engage with each day.

Speaker Bio

Lindsay T. Graham, Ph.D. is a personality and social psychologist at the Center for the Built Environment (CBE) at the University of California, Berkeley. There she is founder and lead of CBE’s Psychology of Space research program—which investigates the ways in which occupants affect and are affected by their daily spaces. Dr. Graham’s work spans the fields of psychology, engineering, architecture, interior design, and human-computer mediated interactions. Broadly speaking, she examines the ways in which people select, manipulate, and utilize their daily environments to best fit their personalities, goals, and needs. She explores these areas of inquiry in a variety of both physical and virtual spaces.
