I am an urban climatologist who has been working in climate-sensitive urban planning and design for 15 years. My primary research interest is on the relationship between the built environment and urban climate, with a particular focus on human thermal comfort in outdoor environment. I am also interested in exploring the inter-relationships between the built environment, climate, and health and well-being.

I am experienced in inter-disciplinary research which transfers scientific knowledge into practical guidance in climate-sensitive urban planning and design. I was the principal investigator of a number of projects commissioned by government departments, non-governmental organisations and private sectors. I am currently a member of the WMO Expert Network of the Commission for Observation, Infrastructure and Information Systems and the Commission for Weather, Climate, Water and Related Environmental Services and Applications.
