Congratulations to my PhD student, Kelly Watson, for successfully passing her viva with no corrections. Her doctoral research on ‘Learning Loops in Sustainable Design: Applying Social Return On Investment (SROI) to Buildings’ involved the development of a novel approach to assess the social value of architectural design. The work contributes to the growing wellbeing agenda of the built environment and approaches to evaluate building performance from a user perspective. Thanks to Alan Lewis and Flora Samuel for their examination work and to co-supervisors James Evans and Tim Whitley (Arup). Excellent work, Dr Watson!
