Dr Yuehong Su is a member of the Buildings, Energy & Environment Research Group.
Dr Yuehong Su is an Associate Professor in Energy and Buildings at the Department of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Nottingham. He has about 30 years research experience in heat pump, air conditioning, adsorption/absorption/ejector cooling, desalination, energy efficiency, heat storage, solar concentration, PV/thermal, daylighting, low energy buildings, natural ventilation and CFD modelling. Dr Su has worked on a number of projects funded by the EPSRC, EU, Innovate UK, NSFC and industry and has published over 160 papers in refereed journals and conferences. He has been the supervisor/co-supervisor of about 20 PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. He teaches Engineering Thermodynamics, Air Conditioning Technology, Daylighting and Solar Architecture Modelling, and he is the Course Director for MSc Sustainable Energy and Entrepreneurship. Dr Su has recently supervised several Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship projects and jointly managed one FP7 ICARUS project and several EPSRC and Innovate UK projects on sustainable energy technologies.
