SFU Living Lab

May 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
SFU’s Living Lab is an applied research program that facilitates sustainability-themed research at SFU through collaboration.

SFU’s Living Lab

Join us for this amazing lineup of online events, featuring four Living Lab projects, all aimed at meeting sustainability targets! This year’s projects explore transportation options through a commuter survey, optimized building retrofits, the life and afterlife of digital devices, and sustainable energy production through utilizing hybrid solar-rain cells.

SFU Transportation and Commuting Survey

Laura Beattie conducts a comprehensive survey across campuses to better understand commuting patterns and sources of GHG emissions from transportation-related sources.

Optimized Building Retrofit Strategy Tool

Milad Ebadi aims to design an Optimized Building Retrofit Strategy Tool (OBRST) to reduce each building’s energy demand for space cooling and heating, based on specific parameters, like location, working routine and construction material.

The Life and Afterlife of Digital Devices in Academic Research

Reese Muntean examines the gaps in sustainable human-computer interaction research and in university procurement through a visual and mixed-methods research study of technology procurement and the end of life of digital devices at SFU.

Sustainable Energy Production Through Utilizing Hybrid Solar-Rain Cells

Ribwar Ahmadi fabricates and tests silicon-based hybrid solar-rain cells to harvest the energy of sunlight and falling droplets of water, simultaneously.

SFU’s Living Lab is an applied research program that facilitates sustainability-themed research at SFU by creating structured collaborations between staff, faculty and graduate students. The program aims to provide opportunities for applied research and experiential learning that improve the sustainability of SFU’s three campus communities.
