Associate Professor of Sustainable Built Environment

Dr. Ronita Bardhan is Associate Professor of Sustainable Built Environment at the Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge. She leads the Sustainable Design research group at the university. Her research focuses on data-driven design for built environments that respond by reducing health and energy burdens in the warming climate. Bardhan combines architectural engineering, AI and machine learning with social sciences to develop built environment design solutions. She has conducted heat-health & energy research in diverse socio-economic settings in the United Kingdom, India, Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Africa, Indonesia etc.

Bardhan established the research lab - Sustainable Design Group at the university. Her impactful work has received immense traction from policymakers. She currently advises government agencies on energy efficiency and heat health in affordable housing.

Bardhan was awarded the Exceptional Woman of Excellence Awards by Women Economic Forum and has been felicitated by the Ministry of Health, Government of Maharashtra, India for her contribution in urban health, housing and climate change.
