Dr. Karolina M. Zielinska-Dabkowska completed her studies of Architecture and Urban Planning at Gdansk University of Technology (GUT), Poland and Architectural Engineering at University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HAWK), Hildesheim/Holzminden/Goettingen Germany. As a trained architect, she pursued a career in lighting by working for several world-renowned lighting design firms in Berlin, London, New York, and Zürich. She has 10+ years of international experience in the completion of medium and large scale interior and exterior design projects and in project management for clients from corporate, institutional, retail, hospitality, and transportation sectors. In 2013 she obtained her Ph.D. from Gdansk University of Technology, Poland, where she translated her practice- based knowledge in architectural lighting into theoretical guidelines for architects, for which she was recognized with the 2014 Polish Prime Minister's Research Award. In 2015 she was awarded the Professional Lighting Design Recognition Award 2015 in the category "Research" for her work and research on the non-visual effects of light for humans, flora and fauna. In 2013 Dr. Zielinska-Dabkowska co-founded the firm designs-4-people [d4p], where she currently practises as a lighting designer, educator, and researcher. She has participated in a number of international conferences, and has written articles for national and international publications. She is also a professional member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD).

Professor Michael F. Rohde completed his studies of architecture at Karlsruhe University. After three years of practice as an architect, he obtained a Master of Science degree in Light and Lighting from the Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL in London. In 1998 he founded L-Plan Lighting Design, an independent lighting design practice in Berlin. He has wide experience of lighting in all areas of artificial and day lighting design. Since September 2006, Michael Rohde has been teaching as a Professor of Architectural Lighting Design and Architecture at the Hochschule Wismar, University of Technology, Business and Design Wismar, Germany.
