Built Environmental Neurophysiology Researcher - PhD Student – Advisor
Sophie Schuller, a Neurophysiology Researcher specialising in the Built Environment, is currently pursuing her Ph.D. at the Technical University of Eindhoven. Sophie’s research explores the impact of office design on neurophysiological stress and cognition, considering the mediating role of sensory perception. Her research encompasses the convergence of architecture, sensory perception, cognitive neuroscience, stress physiology, and the history of work and the city.
Despite her architectural focus, Sophie approaches her research through the lens of Commercial Real Estate Development, examining the industries' role in shaping human experiences within buildings and cities. With over 18 years of experience in consulting, finance, and research, including leading Global Applied Research for Cushman & Wakefield, Sophie's expertise extends to understanding how urban systems influence society and public health.
Sophie holds an MSc in Neuroscience from King’s College London, an MBA from London Business School, a BSc in Urbanism and a CFA. Sophie is a sought-after speaker at global conferences on real estate, construction, design, and the built environment. She has authored and contributed to numerous papers, articles, and books, recently collaborating with The Royal Institute of British Architects on a book on the future of work and workplace, 'Reworking the Workplace.
