Bin Yan, Ph.D., Post Doctoral Fellow
Bin’s primary research areas are building simulation, HVAC system fault detection, and data analytics for buildings and systems. Her recent research projects include quantifying uncertainties in HVAC system operations, and developing data-oriented models to predict building energy demand and HVAC system performance for the purpose of decision-making. Bin received both her Bachelor and Master of Engineering from Tsinghua University. She received her PhD degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where she conducted a dissertation on “A Bayesian Approach for Predicting Building Cooling and Heating Consumption and Applications in Fault Detection.
