The primary aim of Xining his CSC-funded PhD-project is to develop the method of Spatiotemporal Building Stock Modelling to support decisions on sustainable development in the construction sector.
Xining Yang received his MSc degree in Management (Technology Economy and Management) in 2018 at the School of Construction Management and Real Estate, Chongqing University. During his MSc, Xining focused on BIM (Building Information Modeling) application in data collection and processing for the Life Cycle Assessment of buildings. He joined the Institute of Environmental Science (CML) of Leiden University in September 2018 to pursue his doctoral degree.
The primary aim of his CSC-funded PhD-project is to develop the method of Spatiotemporal Building Stock Modelling to support decisions on sustainable development in the construction sector. His PhD-topic is ‘Big Data GIS for Spatiotemporal Building Stock Modelling: Tracking Prospective Construction Materials and Building Energy Demand’. It characterizes the construction materials in buildings to understand the material amount, composition and dynamics. It also reveals the energy demand of building stock under various energy-efficiency policy scenarios.
