Background

I have educational background in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) for bachelor degree, sustainable building design for master degree, solar energy systems for PhD degree and global energy for MBA degree.

I'm leading the City Information Modeling (CIM) research group with multidisciplinary research across subjects of energy, building and data analytics. Our group is active in national/international projects, IEA tasks and EU Cost action.

Research

I lean towards interdisciplinary researches in two streams: 

  • Adaptive Solar Facades and related systems: PV, PVT, heat pump, heat pipe, thermal facade, passive building design, and economic evaluation.
  • Data analytics for buildings and cities: building energy performance modeling, occupant behavior, digitalization, BIM, and peer-to-peer business modeling.

Meanwhile, I also serve as 'subject editor' for "Building Simulation" Journal, "Commissioning Editor" for "Intelligent Buildings International" Journal and "Member of the editorial board" for "Buildings" Journal.
