Nari Yoon, DDes Student »
DDesPic_nyoon_webNari is a Doctor of Design student at the GSD. Her cross-disciplinary design research involves high performance, urban airflow, building energy simulation (BES) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Her academic and professional interests range from architectural design to engineering for design. Before attending the DDes program, she worked as a building performance analyst and CFD engineer at Cradle North America where she helped CFD users with their projects and performed independent studies on CFD simulations. Her recent study about BIM-integrated CFD Automation demonstrated the potential for applying CFD to design phases. She also held several workshops and lectures about the applications of CFD for buildings at professional conferences and academic institutions. Nari holds a Master in Design Studies from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and B.Arch from the Hongik School of Architecture, Korea.
