Bing received the Doctor in Design Studies degree at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and his dissertation was entitled “Decision-Making Support in Early Design Stage for High Performance Naturally Ventilated Buildings.” Bing also holds a Master in Design Studies degree in Energy and Environments from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from Tsinghua University in China. Currently Bing works as a Post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities.
Bing’s primary research interest is building performance informed design, including building performance evaluation and its integration with design, especially in regard to natural ventilation, but also including daylighting, energy consumption and thermal comfort. In his doctoral research he developed a design decision-making support system for early-stage design considering natural ventilation potential and embedded the system in Rhino Grasshopper.
Bing worked as teaching assistance at both Harvard University and Tsinghua University for core course and studios, as well as research assistance for various research projects. In addition, he also has work experience in assisting designers during an internship with Transsolar, an international architectural consulting firm. He worked there as a computational fluid dynamics specialist, focusing on analysis of natural ventilation and thermal comfort of indoor and outdoor spaces.
