Ulrika Wänström Lindh is a Senior Lecturer in Resource Recovery and the Built Environment. With a background as a house architect, interior architect SIR/MSA and lighting designer she focuses on issues of architecture and the user's experience in both interior and exterior contexts. The doctoral thesis Light Shapes Spaces (2012) mainly describes qualitative studies of complex spaces where many factors interact, when light shapes spaces. Central themes in Ulrika's research and teaching are size perception of space, room atmosphere, lighting and safety for pedestrians, visual guidance, and how light can affect social behaviour and interaction between people. Later studies have dealt with the perception of the uniformity of light.  The goal of the research is to gain knowledge to be able to prioritize the right light in the right place and thus get more benefit from the light while saving resources.
