We are thrilled to share with you the 6th episode of our podcast on sustainable lighting design featuring Chronobiologist Till Roenneberg .
With winter solstice a couple of weeks away, we talked with him about our biological needs for light and darkness, the causes and consequences of Social Jetlag and Daylight Saving Time, and what key features a building should have to support our circadian rhythm.
Dr. Till Roenneberg is the President of the World Federation of Societies for Chronobiology, and former President of the European Society for Rhythms Research. Till has initiated and directed several large national and international research networks and received several international research prizes and has been named “Ambassador of Sleep” by the German Sleep Foundation.
He has published more than 200 papers that have been cited more than 21,000 times and has written two books, “Internal Time” and “The Right to Sleep”.
