Areas of Interest

Dr. Wang’s research focuses on sustainable built environments. The areas of interest include smart buildings and envelopes, daylighting and windows, performance-based design and analysis, and biomimicry for building sustainability. He is particularly interested in the multidisciplinary approach to sustainable design which combines experimental works on building technologies, computational modeling and simulation, and user-ended data sensing and processing.
