Stavroula Thravalou has received her Bachelor degree in Architecture Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2007 and acquired a M.Sc. at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in 2010, specializing in the field of “Bioclimatic Architecture and Environment”. She is a PhD candidate in the Department of Architecture, at the University of Cyprus (UCy).

She is also a member of Energy, Environment and Water Research Center of Cyi, as well as a member of the adjunct teaching staff of the UCy. Since 2012 she has been involved in various research projects focusing on innovative ways of conservation and energy retrofit of vernacular buildings in the east Mediterranean region (Biovernacular, Biocultural) and has participated as a member of the advisory committee in research projects focusing on sustainable urban heritage management (Violet, SUSHI).

Her research experience is focused on the fields of thermal comfort monitoring, sustainable conservation of heritage buildings & dynamic building simulation. Her PhD addresses the cooling potential of natural ventilation through experimental measurements in earth buildings and street canyons, linking urban scale morphometric parameters with the environmental performance of heritage buildings. She has published her work concerning energy-related occupant behavior, conservation and thermal comfort in various international conferences and journals.
