    Personal profile


    Dr Fang holds a BEng in Electronic Technology and a PhD in Advanced Vacuum Glazing, a fellow of UK Higher Education Academy, Vacuum Science Group committee member of UK Institute of Physics. He has significant experience in the thermal modelling and experimental analysis for advanced glazing systems, in addition to a broad experience in solar energy technologies and fenestration. He has extensive experience in solar energy, the thermal evaluation of advanced glazing and thermal insulation systems and technologies through experimental characterisation and theoretical evaluation. He has published his research widely in journal and conference contributions in this and related areas. He has been an invited speaker and keynote speaker by several international conferences and national (UK Institute of Physics) and international research institutes (Chinese Academy of Science). He has worked on Advanced Glazing projects funded by European Union, UK DTI and Irish government and industry consultation projects. He has been a Principle Investigator for Innovate UK grant through ICURe programme and CO-PI for several projects. He has been an invited reviewer for the proposals by EPSRC, Chinese Natural Science Foundation (NSFC) and Netherlands Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO) and a regular reviewer for over 20 mainstream international journals and international conferences.      

    Research Interests

    • Developed finite element (FEM) and finite volume models (FVM) to simulate thermal and optical performance of advanced glazing systems and building façade;
    • Experimental validations for the FEM/FVM;
    • Nonimaging optics design for light transfer with maximum efficiency and solar concentrator design;
    • Simulation and experimental validation for energy efficiency in building fenestration systems;
    • Advanced glazing system design;
    • Thermoelectric generator (TEG) application in building fenestration and other energy systems. I am leading the research and lead the patent of TEG application.
