Biographical details

Jungsoo Kim is a research associate in the Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Laboratory, Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning. He received his PhD in Architectural Science from the University of Sydney and his PhD project focused on occupant satisfaction with IEQ in office buildings. He also studied Architectural Engineering at Hanyang University in South Korea and Sustainable Built Environment at the University of New South Wales in Australia. Prior to joining the IEQ Lab, he worked for Green Building Research Department at Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology, where he was engaged in a research project aimed at developing high-performance building envelope systems. His current research interests include human thermal comfort, occupant adaptive behaviour, and IEQ performance assessment. He is also an active member of international research groups such as International Energy Agency?s Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme.
