Dr. Kakoto Yokohari from University of Tokyo visited Texas A&M University to share a presentation to the Microclimatic- Design Research Group. He had a presentation about the design of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Marathon Course and discussed how to improve the microclimatic conditions for runners and spectators. We enjoyed the presentation with a delicious beer in the Golf Club.
Dr. Jennifer Vanos from UC San Diego visited Texas A&M to discuss our joint research projects. In this seminar, she shared a really wonderful research on the effects of physical activity and shade on the heat balance and thermal comfort of children in a playground microclimate with the Microclimatic-Design Research Group. It was a great chance to meet the members of the group and find out a bit about what we are planning.
