PhD student in Architecture, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Research Study:
In collaboration with Meteo-France, the initial plan for my PhD thesis research is to evaluate the performance of the SURFEX model in representing the surface characteristics and urban climate in high-density high-rise environments, such as that of Hong Kong. Based on the comparison of model outputs to field weather data, model parameters could be improved and refined to allow a broader application of the model in diverse and complex urban environments worldwide. The goal of my research is to be eventually able to make use of reliable model results to better understand the mircoclimate conditions and inform planning decision-making in a city scale.
