Dr Isaac Jamieson is a scientist, architect and environmental consultant. In addition to his work with Biosustainable Design, he is presently a Committee Member of the Institute of Physics' Electrostatics Group (for which he was Hon. Secretary and Treasurer for 3 years), a Corresponding Member of the RIBA Regulations and Standards Group and an Expert Group Member at the European Commission.
In 2011 he represented the RIBA on the UK Health Protection Agency's ELF EMF Communication Working Group and also gave a presentation related to best practice and photovoltaics on its behalf at a BRE conference in that year.
Whilst working at Imperial College (after undertaking his PhD there) he undertook work related to risk governance and stakeholder discourse for Integrated Assessment of Health Risks of Environmental Stressors in Europe (INTARESE), for PRATIQUE related to the enhancement of pest risk analysis techniques, for the long-term Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) health research project related to air quality assessments, and developed concepts for Imperial College's 'Lifelong Health Project: Environments for an ageing population'. He is also involved in developing best practice measures for hospital design and biophilic design.
In 2008 he organised the international 1-day conference 'Electromagnetic Phenomena and Health – A Continuing Controversy?' at the Institute of Physics, and in 2011 presented his report 'Smart Meters: Smarter Practices' at the European Parliament. In 2014 he gave an invited presentation at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in Brussels entitled at 'Changing perspectives – improving lives'.
Isaac is a regular contributor to the CIBSE Intelligent Buildings Group, especially on matters related to biosustainability issues. He is also one of its Committee Members and highly committed to design innovation and value creation.

She later worked at Imperial College as a researcher conducting field campaigns/ experiments on the effects of air pollution on reproductive health for the Born-in-Bradford project, whilst carrying out research on indoor air pollution, ventilation, climate, and building factors, as part of INTARESE (Integrated Assessment of Health Risks of Environmental Stressors in Europe), an EU FP6 project, and the INTARESE/HEIMTSA Mega Case Study.
Alongside her academic research career and her PhD research, she has initiated/ conducted further research on healthy and sustainable design/development and acted as a trans-Atlantic project coordinator.
Construction projects covered over 20 years of diverse professional experience include Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) campus (as part of the world’s 1st zero carbon city:- with PHA Consults); Bangkok’s 1st underground system; luxury residential condominiums (29-47 floors); housing projects (up to 4,240 units per project); a 34-storey mixed-use complex; a golf course in China; and a conceptual large-scale urban regeneration project in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Sirina is additionally the Managing Editor of the Intelligent Buildings International Journal, and a Committee Member of both the CIBSE Intelligent Buildings Group and the CIBSE Knowledge Delivery Sub-Committee.
