Norhan Bayomi, Postdoctoral Associate

Norhan is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative and a Research Assistant in the Urban Metabolism Group. She received her BSc in Architecture from Cairo University, MSc in Building Technology from MIT in 2017, and PhD from the same program in 2021. Norhan’s research is focused on climate change science, possible impacts in developing regions, and what role the built environment can play in addressing this dilemma. She explores potential human health risks associated with increased temperature in cities and how using aerial technology and AI can assist in better understanding building and urban design while defining suitable adaptation strategies.
