Jaehan Lim is a professor at Ewha Womans University of Republic of Korea. He received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Architecture at Seoul National University in 1999, 2001 and 2005 respectively. After completing his Ph.D degree, he worked for the Research Institute of Industrial Science & Technology (RIST) as a senior researcher from April 2005 to February 2007. He also worked at Cheongju University from March 2007 to February 2010.
His research interests include radiant heating and cooling systems, the thermal performance of building envelope (wall, window, curtain wall system, etc.), building energy management systems (BEMS), thermal comfort, solar rights and advanced daylighting systems, HVAC systems and renewable energy systems such as geothermal heat pumps and photovoltaic systems in buildings. Most of the research topics are core technologies for the realization of zero-energy buildings and focused on the energy efficiency, human health and thermal comfort in buildings. Recently, he has worked on research on thermally activated building system (TABS), a type of radiant heating and cooling systems. He has also completed research on a personal comfort model based on the heart rate variability (HRV) in different thermal environment conditions.
