Airborne Particle Dynamics in the Built Environment


Feb 15, 2021: Yue Pan and Chun Chen attended the 15th ROOMVENT virtual conference (RoomVent 2020). Yue presented a conference paper "Pan, Y., Lin, C.-H., Wei, D., Chen, C.* (2021). Influence of ventilation on particle deposition around cabin supply air nozzles.  Paper 1172".

Feb 01, 2021: Tongling Xia has obtained her Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Automation Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Starting from Feb 01, 2021, Dr. Xia continues to work as a postdoc in our group. 

Dec 31, 2020: The journal Building Simulation announced the top 20 most downloaded papers published in 2019 and 2020. Our paper "Liu, W.*, You, R., Chen, C.* (2019). Modeling transient particle transport by fast fluid dynamics with the Markov chain method. Building Simulation, 12, 881–889." is on the list.

Dec 09, 2020: Tongling Xia passed her Ph.D. oral exam. Her thesis title is "Effective strategies for indoor particulate air pollution control". During the Ph.D. study, Tongling has published five high-quality journal papers and another one is to be submitted. Congratulations to Dr. Xia!

Dec 02, 2020: Prof. Chun Chen was advanced from Associate Member to Member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
