Javeriya Hasan

PhD candidate, Toronto Metropolitan University

I am currently a PhD Candidate at Toronto Metropolitan University, Canada. My research involves the development of a Machine Learning (ML) algorithm accounting for morphological parameters representing the neighbourhood context and the prediction of density and volume of solar envelope forms. It is noteworthy that solar envelopes are architectural forms of buildings that are connected to the 'solar rights' concept, whereby new development forms do not overshadow adjacent buildings. This is important from the standpoint of assuring solar accessibility to building surfaces such as rooftops and facades, as that would allow the feasibility for appropriate technologies and also ensure passive solar heating.
