Dr Zahirah Azizi

University of Northumbria
I am a Senior Lecturer in Quantity Surveying in the Department of Built Environment at Northumbria University. My research interests are on the innovative ways of how urban sustainability can be achieved through the study of human behaviour. I take a sociotechnical approach to sustainability from which the symbiotic relationship between humans and technology is examined to engineer pragmatic measures of sustainable living and building solutions. My PhD research explored the perspectives of construction professionals on the “soft” elements of green building construction design, and the factors that influence their attainment in practice. I have worked in the education and research sector for over 10 years in the UK and Malaysia and am a member of the Construction Futures research group at Northumbria.
