Jung Min Han (Ellie), DDes
Jung Min Han is a Center for Green Buildings and Cities Fellow. Her research interest lies in energy-efficient building design and its underlying theories from diverse disciplines such as architecture, building physics and computer science. She navigates interoperable building simulation software for architects to use in creating flexibilities between building performance analysis and early design decision-making. Her doctoral research focused on tool development for environmental analysis and building performance simulation. She uses statistical inference as her primary methodology for advancing the feasibility of software with manifold sets of building data. Jung Min holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Korea National University of Arts, a Master of Science in Building Performance and Diagnostics from Carnegie Mellon University, a Master in Design Studies with a concentration in Energy and Environments from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, as well as a Doctorate of Design degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
Mayuri Rajput, PhD
Mayuri is a fellow and lecturer at the Center for Green Buildings and Cities. She completed her doctoral studies at Georgia Institute of Technology where she examined the impact of urbanization on the outcomes of building simulation and the uncertainties induced in its performance predictions. She has also used urban building simulations to gauge the impact of weather in context of making urban policy decisions. As a Graduate Research Assistant, she assumed the lead role in building a customized simulation platform for modeling heat stress in residential building stock in the cities of Atlanta, Detroit and Phoenix for the current and future climate conditions. Titled the Three City Heat and Electrical Failure Adaptation Study (3HEAT), the results of this NSF funded project have been published in over 20 peer-reviewed articles and featured in the New York Times and on CBS News. She has an extensive background in Energy with her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering and Renewable Energy Engineering respectively. She is interested in the building performance evaluation in changing climate, urban building simulations and grid interactive buildings.
