Profile

I am a Cities, Environment and Liveability researcher with specific interests in the areas of housing stock energy modelling for optimising sustainable bioclimatic design over the time frame of climate change projections.

I was awarded my PhD at Sheffield School of Architecture in 2019, having previously completed a B.Sc. in Architectural Engineering at Hanyang University in South Korea and MSc in Sustainable Architectural Studies at Sheffield School of Architecture.

As an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, I am currently working with Professor Darren Robinson and Dr Chengzhi Peng, looking at ‘Thermal Stress Vulnerability and Resilience: Housing Stock Transformation fit for an Ageing Society in Future Climate’. This aims to quantify climate change impacts on the thermal discomfort of care home residents, leading to transformation of care home stock resilient to climate change for healthy ageing.

Research interests
  • Quantifying climate change impacts on built environments 
  • Computational modelling of urban micro environments 
  • Housing stock energy modelling 
  • Bioclimatic Design with climate change 
  • Modelling thermal comfort
