This research compared four typical occupant profiles as they moved throughout an office space over the course of a day. Each profile produced varying light exposure profiles, illustrating the lack of light equity experienced across a sample population of building occupants. This work was presented through a peer-reviewed paper to SimAUD 2020 and was awarded a Best Paper Award.
