Fu-Yun Zhao serves as a Professor at Wuhan University, Wuhan, China, and an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Technical University of Munich, Garching, Germany, concurrently. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2008 in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning from Hunan University, Changsha, China. Before joining the Technical University of Munich in 2011 and Wuhan University in 2013, Zhao worked at the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, and the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK. His research covers a wide range of topics in numerical heat transfer and fluid flow, modeling of built environment and urban microclimates, and green energy conversion and management. Specific current interests include inverse CFD modeling on fluid flow and heat transfer, coupling of urban microclimates and building energy consumptions, heat recovery in building energy, electricity/thermal energy storage, inverse convective heat and mass transfer, multiple and resonant fluid flow, built and microclimatic air environment (CFD/experiment/theory), and sustainable and green building energy.
