variety of innovative lighting design for outstanding projects around
the globe.

Yaser is the senior advisor of Proxima's R&D with a major focus on light-
based innovation including UV germicidal irradiation. With a PhD in
Electrical Engineering and 10+ years of experience in R&D,

In this presentation, we will go over Proxima's lighting design processes including
getting the designer's idea and characteristics of the projects, developing concepts up to offering detailed design and custom solutions (where needed) both for exterior and
interior lighting. The presentation would include a few illustrations and case studies. The
main focus is the transition that has happened recently in lighting design considerations from quantitative calculations to qualitative evaluations.

In the second part, we will present an overview of the germicidal effect of light and how it can be leveraged during the building design phase. This part of presentation will also include a walkthrough of a few UV disinfection projects of Proxima to demonstrate how we can simulate the risk of exposure. Also health, safety and efficacy considerations will be discussed.
