Dr. Qi received his PhD in Building Engineering from Concordia University in 2016. He was then a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Zero Energy Building Studies at Concordia University. He graduated from Nanjing Normal University (China) with a Bachelor's degree in Building Environment and Equipment Engineering in 2006, and a Master's degree in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. In 2018, he joined the Department of Civil and Building Engineering at the Université de Sherbrooke. Prof. Qi has done extensive research on the building's thermal air flow and its effects on building safety, human health, building energy and thermal comfort. He has been a major member of many national and international projects on energy management and building efficiency, as well as heat and mass transfer of building physics, supported by the NSERC/HydroQuébec Industrial Research Chair, the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST, USA) and the Air Management and Control Association (AMCA, USA). He received the ASHRAE 2013 grant (ASHRAE) and the "Chinese Government Award for Self-financed Students Abroad" 2016.
