Biography:

Conrad Philipp graduated with a diploma in geography and urban planning from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany in 2009 and has worked for the JENA-GEOS-Ingenieurbuero GmbH as a deputy team leader. In 2013, Conrad received his PhD at the Institute of Urban Planning and Urban Design of the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany with a dissertation titled ‘The impact of a green belt on the urban development of a megacity: Interdisciplinary research on the example of Seoul (Republic of Korea)’. During his PhD, he held a scholarship from the Federal Republic of Germany and from the University of Duisburg-Essen. As a postdoctoral researcher at the sd+b centre, Conrad will coordinate the CRC (Low Carbon Living) research project ‘Urban Micro Climates: Comparative study of major contributors to the Urban Heat Island effect in three Australian cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide)’ and lead the team researching ‘Urban Micro Climates: Comparative study of Tianjin, Shenzen and Shenyang’ at the China-Australia Centre for Sustainable Urban Development.


“We aim to develop a cross-disciplinary, multi-scale understanding of Australian cities’ microclimates, by focusing on the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect and the interplay between urban form, density, surfaces and ambient temperature.”
