I am extremely proud to announce that I was awarded the "outstanding video" (first prize) in the 2023 Video Challenge from the journal Buildings & Cities.

The video describes the "HeatWatch" application that I am co-developing at Heat and Health Research Incubator with Ollie Jay. My video addresses one of the grand challenges the world is currently facing: "Building Resilience to heatwaves and extreme heat".

You can watch my 2-min video on the Buildings & Cities website.
