Current Research

Currently, Dr. Zheng is working on the Built2Spec project, which is a Horizon 2020 EU-funded project involving 20 European partners from 8 countries that seek to reduce the gap between a building's designed and as-built energy performance. His current role is to integrate the pulse technique to Built2Spec platform where building quality assurance tools are used for self-inspection, 3D modelling, management and quality-check in order to revolutionize the way Europe delivers green buildings.

Past Research

His previous research experience extends to an Innovate UK research project which aimed to develop the commercial application of the pulse technique for measuring building airtightness at low pressures, with 5 other industrial partners.

His past research experience also covers heating and ventilation in buildings and high speed trains, nature-inspired viscous drag reduction method and domestic thermoelectric cogeneration system for power generation and hot water production. He was also involved in a European house retrofitting project (HERB) which aimed to improve the energy performance of existing energy inefficient houses, working on modelling of Phase-Change material and thermal comfort analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamic methods.

Future Research

His research interest lies in the research and development and utilisation of renewable and sustainable energy technologies in domestic and industrial sector.
