Profile

My research helps to providing new insights on the effects of spatial scale on urban economic performance.

Dr Hadi Arbabi


Hadi’s work and research interests sit at the interface of data-driven urban engineering and planning. As a work package leader for Active Building Centre, his research focused on scalable approaches to building stock characterization for retrofit purposes. Prior to this, Hadi’s research involved providing new insights on the effects of spatial scale on urban economic performance balance and the extent to which it is influenced by urban density and mobility infrastructure across spatial scales.
