The Sustainable Buildings and Societies Laboratory (SBS Lab) focuses on developing cutting edge modeling and simulation technology and applying them for the design, operation and optimization of sustainable, smart, and resilient building, communities and cities. Our current primary focuses are:
- Smart, Sustainable & Resilient Cities
- High Performance Buildings
- Advanced Modeling for Building Energy and Control Systems
Thanks to the interdisciplinary nature in our research, Dr. Zuo, the director of SBS Lab, is associated with two Interdisciplinary Research Themes (IRTs) at the College of Engieering & Applied Science, including Water Energy Nexus IRT and Autonomous Systems IRT, as well as three Interdisciplinary Research Programs at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering, including Building Systems Engineering, Civil Systems, and Engineering Science. Dr. Zuo also holds a joint appointment at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
