Dr Yufan Zhang is an architect. She carried out her PhD in the School of Architecture, University of Sheffield. Her PhD work was focused on occupants’ comfort and behaviour and how they use environmental control strategies to modify their internal environment. In January 2008, she joined SCRI as a Research Fellow, School of the Built Environment, University of Salford. Yufan’s work in SCRI is to conduct research on a variety of issues related to ‘realising value in use’ of the built environment. This involves the identification of international good practice, linking this to evidence from applied activities, such as the post occupant evaluations, in order to develop a stronger evidence base to better understand the characteristics of beneficial spaces for users, especially in the design and refurbishment of schools.
