New insights in workplace lighting: Mr. Stefan Klir researches individual lighting preferences at the workplace.


We are pleased to announce the successful defense of Mr. Stefan Klir's dissertation titled “Modeling of individual lighting preferences depending on various influencing parameters”.

Under the guidance of his doctoral advisor, Prof. Khanh, and co-supervisor Prof. Dörsam, Mr. Klir has advanced pioneering research in the field of workplace lighting. His work focused on the precise modeling of individual lighting preferences in the work environment, where he developed new mathematical models for the preference of illuminance and color temperature as well as employed machine learning methods.

This dissertation not only provides deep insights into the complex interplay between light and the work environment but also suggestions for the individual lighting of offices. Congratulations to Mr. Klir on this significant contribution that opens the door to new insights and developments in workplace lighting research.
