Jacqueline Baker

Head of Research
Cox Architecture

With a background in Architecture and Psychology (University of Tasmania, University of Surrey, UK, respectively), and freshly armed with a PhD (Monash University), Jacqueline researches how human experience and response is shaped by architectural design and uses insights gained to inform design at COX’s Melbourne studio where she heads up the research team. Her role includes quantitative and qualitative research in the workplace, healthcare, urban & transport, landscape, housing and sports sectors.
Jacqueline, passionate about research in practice, formed a support group for practice-based researchers in Australia in 2019 which grows each month and is attended by architects from large practices. She is keenly interested in collaborating, writing, teaching and speaking on the topics of Post Occupancy Evaluation and more broadly, Environmental Psychology and the role of architectural design in shaping human experience.
