Background and activities
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
