Dr Yuehong Su is a member of the Buildings, Energy & Environment Research Group.
Dr Yuehong Su is an associate professor at the Institute of Sustainable Energy Technology, Department of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Nottingham. He has experience in air conditioning, adsorption/absorption/ejector cooling, energy efficiency, heat storage, daylighting, solar concentration, CFD modelling and building simulation. Dr Su has worked on a number of projects funded by the EPSRC, EU, UK Government and industry and has published over 60 papers in refereed journals and conferences. He is the supervisor/co-supervisor of several PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, and the Course Director for MSc Sustainable Energy and Entrepreneurship. Dr Su has a current research focus on daylighting and natural ventilation in a close collaboration with UK companies to develop various renewable energy solutions for daylighting and natural ventilation in low/zero emissions buildings. Dr Su is experienced in experimentation and simulation of daylighting and solar concentration systems.
