My passion in engineering is applications of thermo-fluids in buildings and the environment. An understanding of fluid flow, heat, and mass transfer finds many great applications in green building design, ventilation systems, renewable energy technologies, co-generation, indoor and outdoor air quality, climate change, and much more. Over the years, I have gained much experience in these areas, and I provide services in related fields, including the above. My home institution is the University of Guelph, ON, Canada, where I am an assistant professor in the environmental engineering program. 

Highlights of research interests:

 - Atmospheric sciences- Air quality and thermal comfort in indoor and outdoor spaces- Thermo-fluids of air including heat, mass, and pollutant transfer processes- Urban environment- Buildings energy systems including co-generation, Heating Ventilating Air Conditioning and Refrigerating (HVAC & R) systems- Turbulent flows- Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)- Experimental thermo-fluids
