Self-running Poster Presentations
PLDC offers educational content and continuing professional development on different levels. Of course, the presentations and interactive sessions and panel discussions offer attendees the chance to directly interact and respond to the speaker or panel guests. The self-running poster presentations add further value to the convention; 15 posters will give attendees the chance to find out about the latest research findings, exciting case studies, and new approaches in lighting design – in their own time!
These are the Poster Presenters and their topics of PLDC 2017:
Sarah Carolan/IE – Daylight in hospital ward design, 1850-1955

Sarah studied Architecture at the University College Dublin and University of Westminster in London before gaining a Masters in Light and Lighting at The Bartlett, University College London. Before starting her new position at Caulfield Wright Architects in August 2017, she worked for Arup in Dublin, Ireland.
After studying Electrical Engineering in Istanbul and Architectural Lighting Design in Stockholm, Dorukalp is currently pursuing a PhD, while also working for SAL in Sydney, Australia. Alp’s doctoral research investigates ways to reduce the energy consumed by lighting by optimising the spectral power distribution of illumination for object reflectance.
The international team of Architecture Graduate Students spent an entire academic year studying the lighting performance of two new whole-building lighting projects on the campus of the University of Idaho.
