Samira Garshasbi

University of New South Wales

Samira Garshasbi is a PhD student and research assistant at Faculty of Built Environment, UNSW Sydney. Samira does research on development, testing, and optimization of advanced technologies/materials to mitigate urban heat island under supervision of Prof. Mat Santamouris (Faculty of Built Environment, UNSW) and Dr. Shujuan Huang (School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering, UNSW).


Urban overheating is a serious problem with high impact on the environmental quality, energy consumption and health. Since high absorbing materials such as asphalt are one of the main contributors to urban overheating, one of... [ view full abstract ]
