Research Relevance and Potential Impact

This research was designed to be among the first to consider the newly proposed climate-

based daylight modeling (CBDM) to assess and analyze daylight levels in courtyard buildings

under Clear Sky Conditions. Previously available assessment methods are not applicable in

the UAE climate. The research concludes with tools to aid designers in achieving optimum

courtyard design and proper sizing of its space and adjacent zones to improve natural lighting

and visual performance.

Career Aspirations

My long term goal is to increase awareness on the importance of proper daylight practices

and its huge effect on human, economy and environment. This can be done through proper

channels with government and decision makers to implement meaningful measures for the

proper daylighting practices.
