Self-introduction
My primary research domain encompasses Building Science with a specific focus on the Global South. In light of the prevailing trend of urbanization in hot-humid regions, where burgeoning populations often face economic constraints, my research endeavors are directed towards developing energy-efficient and low-carbon techniques for constructing affordable housing in the Global South. Key Objectives: Develop energy-saving technologies specifically designed for affordable housing in hot-humid climates. Address the dual challenge of affordability and low-carbon construction techniques, aligning with global sustainability goals.
