Fire-safe building design is paramount to ensure sustainable, resilience development of our built-environment
My research interests and activities relate to the burning behaviour of fire hazardous materials. The type of fuels investigated include common plastic and cellulosic fuels. The research objective aims to develop the fire science knowledge about these fuels, and to evaluate and improve the predictive capability of numerical fire models. My research also covers fire safety of the built environments, including energy efficient/sustainable buildings, high-rise, cultural heritage etc. The research objective is to enhance the life safety of people and property protection by developing the fire engineering best practices.
