Biography

Dongwoo (Jason) Yeom is a researcher and educator with a strong interest in human-building interaction, high-performance building, and sustainable building design. He has conducted multiple experimental research projects on sustainable design, building performance analysis, indoor environment quality (IEQ), and human-building interaction. At ASU, Dr. Yeom is conducting multidisciplinary research projects, investigating the relationship between the indoor environment, human physiological responses, and occupant’s behavior and productivity, and also exploring the methodology to use human physiological signals as an indoor environment control factor. 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. Dr. Yeom received his Ph.D., MS, and BS from the Department of Architecture at Ajou University in Korea and conducted his postdoctoral research at California State Polytechnic University Pomona (CPP) and the University of Southern California (USC). Before joining ASU, he has worked as an assistant professor of Architecture at Lawrence Technological University in Michigan.
