New Appointed Postdoctoral Research Fellow for Biophilic Design in Healthcare Facilities
We are excited to welcome Anahita Sal Moslehian as a new team member of the Live+Smart Research Lab. Anna is a postdoctoral research fellow who works in the emerging field of biophilic design to investigate the impacts of healthcare design on occupants’ health and wellbeing. In her new position, Anna will employ systematic thinking and interdisciplinary research skills, which she developed during her PhD study, to generate knowledge that leads to design innovations in a highly multi-disciplinary context of healthcare design. She will work in close collaboration with CHIME (Change to Improve Mental Health Centre of Excellence, Barwon Health) to explore and identify design and research problems, adopt the existing research findings, and create new evidence to address them and inform policies.
“I am truly pleased to join the research team at Live+Smart Research Lab. Given the significant role of healthcare building design, our research on biophilic design principles and restorative environment criteria will have significant impacts on patients’ experience and healing processes, staffs’ productivity, and organisational efficiency, to name just a few! I’m so excited to work on the ground-breaking research projects defined through the partnership between Barwon Health and Deakin University.” – Anahita Sal Moslehian
