Ellen Kathrine Hansen will speak on the topic:
CREATING AN MSC IN LIGHTING DESIGN IN A TRANS DISCIPLINARY CONTEXT.
Ellen Kathrine Hansen holds a Master in Architecture from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in
Copenhagen and a PhD in lighting design process from Aalborg University.
She is a leading person in the field of transdisciplinary design research and teaching within Lighting
Design. She has more than 20 years of experience driving projects within the field of developing new
architectural potentials through integration of daylight and lighting technology.
Her projects are based on combining knowledge and skills from technical, artistic, humanistic and
industrial environments. In 2012 Dr. Hansen left the window industry to start up a new Master of Science
programme and research platform at Aalborg University in Copenhagen.
The program and research group combines architecture, engineering and media technology in a human
centric approach to lighting solutions that seek to improve our built environment with applied
knowledge of lighting design. Researchers, industrial business partners and students in Lighting Design
team up here to solve relevant societal problems.
