Susie Diamond co-founded Inkling, a building physics consultancy in 2011. Her core building physics skills are in using dynamic thermal simulation software to accurately simulate buildings to predict their energy and thermal performance in operation. She deploys these skills creatively and intelligently to enable more informed design decisions which ultimately contribute to better buildings. She has a special focus on predicting and mitigating overheating risk. She has spoken widely on the topic and was a lead author on CIBSE TM59 Design methodology for the assessment of overheating risk in homes published in 2017.
