Hosting a PhD student from Norwegian University of Life Sciences

The Human Health in the Built Environment research group hosted Sølvi Therese Strømmen Wie, a PhD student from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. She stayed in Koper for two weeks and worked closely with the InnoRenew CoE researchers.

Sølvi partnered with Dean Lipovac, assistant researcher, to analyse data obtained from nursing homes, where she is investigating the relationship between wood use in buildings and employee health. In addition, she presented her research work and PhD topic in more detail at the InnoRenew CoE weekly meeting of employees and held fruitful discussions with the institute’s researchers and PhD students.

“Good conversations with other employees and PhD students provided new insights and ideas regarding my work.,” she noted. “Especially, I am looking forward to working with Nastja Podrekar on the topic of measuring cognition, performance and well-being in schools.”
