Bowen

Background

I spent 7 years studying building science, HVAC, and Indoor Air in Tongji University, China before I came to UofT

Research Interests

My research interests mainly lie in assessing the impacts of indoor environmental quality on occupant health and performance. Currently, I pay major attetion to CO2 and other pollutants and their impacts on cognitive performance

Projects

IEQ and Cognitive Function
Indoor Nanoparticles
Indoor Scenting Products
