Each Methologica team is assembled to match the specific needs of the project.
Methologica was founded by Dr. Celeste Alvaro. Celeste is an experimental environmental social psychologist whose research is focused on assessing how the design of the built environment impacts human behavior, social interaction and wellbeing.
Celeste studies how architecture and the design of the built environment affects behavior, social interaction and wellbeing. She provides research expertise on architecture teams, leads the evaluation of capital redevelopment projects, creates/executes bespoke research, engages architects, designers, government, private sector, hospital leadership and brings with her an animated cadre of field researchers. Driven by curiosity, vibrant cities and neighbourhoods you will find Celeste where life happens.
Celeste has held academic appointments in the Departments of Psychology and Marketing at Simon Fraser University, the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre and Faculty of Health Professions at Dalhousie University, Capital Health in Halifax Nova Scotia, and the Department of Architectural Science at Ryerson University. As a recipient of design research awards, invited speaker, conference presenter and author of publications in leading peer review journals and consultant on interdisciplinary architecture and design teams, Celeste’s creative approach to collaboration and research has been recognized locally, nationally and internationally.
