Dr Monkiz Khasreen, Course Leader


Dr Monkiz Khasreen is a sustainable architectural design specialist, with experience of research and education in a university environment. His passion for sustainable design started during his architecture degree and, combined with the knowledge he received at master's level, he started his PhD at Heriot Watt University investigating the carbon emissions of office buildings in Scotland.

Monkiz is passionate about teaching at high level and places huge importance on building bridges between academia and industry. He is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and a full member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists. He was appointed senior lecturer in architectural technology at Solent University in 2012 and has contributed to making sustainable design practice a core within the architecture and built environment courses. He is now leading on a cluster of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Most of his work has been concerned with maximising building efficiency through design, life-cycle assessment of buildings and materials, and the sustainability theme that brought him into the research community concerned with energy in buildings. He currently tutors students with interests in climate change, sustainability, CO2 reduction, life-cycle assessment, low/zero carbon technologies and human behaviour and perception of buildings.

Further information

Monkiz's research interests lie in sustainability, energy use and CO2 emissions from buildings, life-cycle assessment and life-cycle costing of modern buildings, human behaviour in buildings, and post-war architecture.
