Personal profile

Research interests

My research area of expertise is about Sustainable Design and Development in building/construction. The current green development requires more resilient and climate change adaptation in building design and hence my interests of research are focusing into the following sub-themes: Passive Design Strategies, Low Energy Facade, Indoor Environmental comfort, Office Building Retrofit, Feng Shui Conception in Architectural Design, Carbon Footprinting, Vertical Greeneries and the Green Building Index. Besides, I'm also doing related research in construction project management.
