Dr. Cheung Hiu Dan obtained her BEng Degree in Building Services Engineering from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2000. After graduation, she gained practical experience by working in a building services engineering consultant. She completed her PhD degree from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2006. She worked as a teaching associate in the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education before she came back to the Hong Kong Polytechnic University for the current position. She has over 10 yearsíŽ experience in daylight modeling and lighting simulation. Her major research interests include utilization of daylight in dense urban surroundings, assessment of interior luminous environment and application of high dynamic range photography in lighting measurement.
