Dr Tatiana Alvares-Sanches
I am a Research Associate in GIS for Environmental Health, within the Centre for Environmental Health and Sustainability (CEHS). I joined CEHS to undertake research on noise and air pollution as part of the EU Equal-Life project, and to contribute to other projects. My research interests lie in studying the built environment through the fusion of multiple disciplines such as engineering, environmental science, health science and big data analytics. Prior to joining the Centre, I was an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Research Fellow at the University of Southampton where I also did my PhD in geospatial analysis and an MSc in Energy and Sustainability. In addition, I am a qualified architect and before joining academia, worked for more than five years in architectural and engineering practices across several European countries. I am a chartered member of RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects), the Ordem dos Arquitectos (the Portuguese Professional Accreditation Body for Architects), am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) from the University of Southampton.
