Comments My research area is Building Science for international cooperation. Today, most growing cities are located in the hot-humid regions. People in these regions are still relatively poorer, and thus they need to achieve affordability and low-carbon in building constructions at the same time. My main research focus is, therefore, on development of energy-saving and low-carbon techniques for affordable housing in the Global South. One of the current projects is so-called SATREPS (2020-2026) supported by JST and JICA, entitled "Development of low-carbon affordable apartments in the hot-humid climate of Indonesia towards Paris Agreement 2030". We aim to develop affordable low-carbon building techniques and implement them as national standards in collaboration with the Indonesian counterparts.
