Zheng Kai is a Faculty Fellow in the Architecture and Sustainable Design Pillar at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. He obtained his Doctoral and Bachelor’s degree with 2nd Upper Honours from the University of Singapore. His work investigates how evaporative cooling can be deployed in building design to achieve Thermal Comfort for the Tropics and his interests also lie in how architectural energy systems can work in synergy.
