Sofie Pelsmakers is an architect and doctoral researcher at the University College London Energy Institute. Before joining UCL, Pelsmakers taught sustainability and environmental design at the University of East London for more than 10 years. There she led the MA Sustainability and Design programme.

She is also a co-founder of Architecture for Change, a not-for-profit environmental building and research organisation, with the mission of challenging the way we design and build.
