Tao joined Building Energy and HVAC&R Research Group in 2018. Before that, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Building Environment and Facilities Engineering from Central South University, China, and Master’s Degree in Heating, Gas Supply, Ventilating and Air Conditioning Engineering from Tongji University, China. Tao’s research focused on IoT-based, occupant-centric, fault-adaptive, and grid-interactive HVAC control in residential buildings. He hopes our homes are more comfortable, more sustainable, and more intelligent in the future.
