Jiyun is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and working in Prof. Paul Linden's research group. Her current research interests are building energy performance, natural ventilation, indoor and outdoor thermal comfort, urban microclimate, urban land-atmosphere interactions, urban hydrology, urban boundary layer meteorology, etc. More information can be found from my personal webiste at ResearchGate.
