Main Areas of Research
My research field is Environmental and Building Acoustics, and the detailed research topics relate to community response to noise, psychoacoustics, acoustical design and soundscape. Recently besides the study about the adverse effects brought by noise on adults, children and the aged, I have a growing interest on how to create a healthy acoustic environment for people and how to improve their well-being with suitable sound conditions. The main research projects supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China are as follows: 1) Community response to high-speed train noise; 2) A healthy acoustic environment in residential areas; 3) Restorative soundscape for children and autistic children; 4) Auditory warning signals for the elderly’s urgency perception, and 5) Influence of non-acoustic factors on community response and soundscape evaluation. In addition, my research also covers noise policy and criteria, noise economy evaluation, sound quality evaluation in large spaces and urban soundscape protection. As an acoustic consultant, I have experience on more than 30 practical projects such as the acoustical design of theaters, conference rooms and auditoriums, and noise control of residential and public areas.
