Background and activities

Research area

My research focuses on improvement of indoor airflow distribution and creation of a health indoor environment. It aims to provide a better understanding on how different factors will affect and change the indoor environment quality. My research involves:

  • ventilation and airflow distribution
  • protected zone ventilation
  • thermal comfort
  • prevention of personal exposure
  • indoor environment quality
