About Me:

I am a PhD student in Architectural Engineering, and my current research focuses on machine learning-based fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) in air-conditioners and fault prevalence of commercial building systems. Besides, I am also interested in thermo science and engineering, especially in the field of renewable energy.
