Om Sofia Thorsson

Forskningsintressen

Urban climate, focusing on measurements and modelling of micro-scale processes, air quality and human comfort in urban areas, as well as integration of climate knowledge in urban design and planning.

Many of my projects are multi- and interdisciplinary, including scientists from atmospheric science, architecture, urban and regional planning, psychology, and environmental economy.

Pågående projekt

Research focuses on measurements and modelling of:

  • micro-scale processes and patterns associated with urban landscape elements (buildings, canyons, parks etc.)
  • urban air quality
  • biometeorology, including human comfort
  • impacts of climate change on heat waves and urban tourism

Studies have mainly been carried out in Sweden in the Göteborg area, but also in cities in Japan, UK, Germany, Burkina Faso and Kenya.
