Dr Daniel Sng is a lecturer at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the National University of Singapore. He obtained his joint Ph.D. (Building Science) from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). His Ph.D. work evaluated the shortcomings of conventional air-conditioning systems, and proposed a novel enhancement to the existing system with aims to save energy as well as to improve occupants’ thermal comfort. After completing his doctoral work, Dr Sng joined the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) in NUS as a Programme Manager and a Post-Doc. He was involved in the field of Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) and its application in the tropics.
