climate-responsive urban design, and passive and low-energy architecture
Dr. YANG Feng is currently Associate Professor at College of Architecture and Urban Planning, Tongji University. His research focuses mainly on climate-responsive urban design, and passive and low-energy architecture. In the past five years he has published seventeen peer-reviewed papers, among which four are SCI indexed, five are EI indexed, and one is AHCI indexed. An elected member of Youth Committee member , China Green Building Council (CGBC), he also serves as manuscript reviewers for a number of international journals, including Journal of Building and Environment, Architecture Science Review and Journal of Indoor and Built Environment. He is Principle Investigator of a China National Natural Science Fund (NNSF) and an Fund of Innovative Program of Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, and Co-Investigator of two NNSF.
