„I have had the distinct pleasure of collaborating with Ria Stein on two textbooks on daylighting. We are currently working on a third volume on building energy use. Ria is a fabulous colleague who intellectually engages with the topic of a manuscript and provides invaluable advice on both structure and relevance. Her editing work is impeccable and ensures that any publication bearing her name on is of the highest professional standard. Her cheerful disposition makes our collaboration both fun and effective.“
