Suzaini Zaid is currently teaching at the Department of Building Surveying in Faculty of Built Environment, University of Malaya. Suzaini holds a PhD degree in Planning and Urban Development from the Faculty of the Built Environment, University of New South Wales. She has teaching experience in the fields of building surveying, urban planning, and sustainable development. Her current research interest focuses on vertical greenery systems, operational energy and user behaviour, climate change mitigation and adaptation in built environment. Suzaini was part of the testing of the United Nations Environment Programme’s Sustainable Building and Climate Initiative (UNEP-SBCI)’s Common Carbon Metric and Protocol tool Pilot Test Phase 1 and Phase 2 in the Malaysian context, through her PhD research. Her research was conducted in collaboration of the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, University of New South Wales, UNEP-SBCI, and the City Hall of Kuala Lumpur. Her current research project includes Investigating Social Psychology Factors for User Behaviour Change Towards Energy Efficiency and Conservation; COVID-19 Survivability in Wastewater Systems; Development of Community-based Microbial Farming in Dwelling Areas; and Rejuvenating Public Space Through Re Imagining Recyclable Plastic & Construction Waste. Past research project includes SULED-BIM: Sustainability Led Design Through Building Information Modelling with collaboration with University of Manchester under the 2015 UK Newton Fund; Barriers to Women's Mobility under UK Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC); Carbon Abatement Module for University of Malaya Eco-campus; and Green offices - A healthy workplace of the future.
