Our MMM thought leaders don’t just share the firm’s expertise and case studies in North America; from time to time they are invited to address international audiences.
Uthayan Thurairajah, an electrical systems and transportation engineering senior project engineer in MMM Group’s Thornhill office, made just such a presentation at the 2013 Professional Lighting Design Convention (PLDC) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
A professional engineer with more than 15 years’ experience in the electrical engineering and lighting field, Uthayan presented a comprehensive lighting design process and an overview of the policies and practices of various authorities throughout the world regarding the issue of light and health. His session, Integrating Non-visual Optical Radiation into Lighting Design, also included a review of the science of vision, including the latest research on visual and non-visual receptors, and the effect they have on body rhythms and health.
PLDC is a biannual event for the global lighting design market. Lighting designers, researchers, students, manufacturers, city planners, architects, and engineers use PLDC as a platform to meet, learn about the latest developments in lighting design, and discuss the future of the lighting profession.
