Dr Sucharita Srirangam

I have built an international profile over the years through research, teaching and professional experience. My research
focus is primarily on urban design, where a synergy between space and user is understood as sustainability. I have
expertise in themes of sense of place, urban resilience, sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and smart cities. My
teaching ethos are on integrated approach to architectural design where-in process becomes a balance between a triad of
pragmatic, conceptual and theoretical explorations. My contributions consist of recommendations and effective space
planning with environmental simulation tools such as space syntax, GIS, digital twins for smart cities and urban digital
representation and BIM modeling.
