Haripriya Sathyanarayanan is a Ph.D. student in Building Science, Technology and Sustainability with a Designated Emphasis (DE) in New Media, a Regents Fellow and a Smart Mentor. Her professional career has spanned architectural practice, consultancy and teaching. She worked as an environmentally sustainable design (ESD) consultant in Singapore on a number of sustainable healthcare projects that lured her into her PhD related to the design of healthcare environments. She has Evidence-based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC) and is a LEED AP (BD+C).
Her research agenda is centred around evidence-based design (EBD) and enhanced patient experiences through use of immersive experiences such as virtual reality/augmented reality/mixed reality in healthcare environments to inform spatial design of healthcare facilities through the use of collaborative design process.
