Martijn Lugten

PhD Student


Biography:

I received my BSc and MSc at TU Delft, department of Architecture and the Built Environment and department of Civil Engineering, in the Netherlands. At the moment I am working on a PhD research related to acoustics, airports and urban planning and design. The research focuses on the question how urban- and architectural planning and design can contribute to the reduction of annoyance from aircraft noise. Thereby the research will intensively study the impact of buildings and urban configurations on acoustical and non-acoustical factors determinant for annoyance from airplanes. The overall aim is to use these outcomes to develop means and instruments for planners and designers operating in airport regions to optimize the practice of building and planning and boosting the quality and well-being of communities around airports. The research will primarily focus on the Amsterdam Schiphol region for which reason the Dutch Centre for Aerospace (NLR) is a key partner. The research is also funded by the Cambridge Trust in the form of a Vice-Chancellor's Award.
