Dr. Dongwoo ‘Jason’ Yeom is an Assistant Professor in the College of Architecture and Design (CoAD) at Lawrence Technological University (LTU). He received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. from the Department of Architecture at Ajou University in Korea, and has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at California State Polytechnic University Pomona and University of Southern California.
Dr. Yeom has a strong interest in sustainable design, high performance building, and human building integration. He has conducted multiple experimental researches on the sustainable design, building performance, indoor environment quality (IEQ), and natural construction material. At LTU, he is conducting multidisciplinary research, which investigates the relationship between indoor thermal environment, human physiological responses, and occupant’s productivity as well as the methodology to use human physiological signals as an indoor environment control factor.
Currently, Dr. Yeom is teaching building systems courses; ‘HVAC and Water Systems’ and ‘Acoustics, Electrical and Illumination Systems’. He is also teaching ‘Integrated Design Studio 5’ and ‘Comprehensive Design’, focusing on the building design and systems integration, and ‘Ecological Issues’ for graduate level seminar course.
Based on his works, Dr. Yeom has published multiple papers in prestigious journals, including Building and Environment, Energy and Buildings, and Indoor and Built environment. He also participated in a practice-based start-up company as a founding associate to implement research ideas beyond scholarly products in academia. Currently, he is an active member of American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Society of Building Science Educators (SBSE), Building Technology Educator’s Society (BTES), Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA), and Architectural Institute of Korea (AIK).
