Shengliang (Daniel) Rong, MArch, MEBD
Associate, Delos Labs


Daniel joined Delos Labs after graduating from University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design where he pursued a degree in Environmental Building Design and honed his knowledge in Building Science and High-performance Design. During his time in Penn, Daniel has actively participated in projects focusing on evaluation and optimization of indoor environment (lighting/acoustic/thermal) comfort and building energy consumption.

Prior to coming onboard DelosTM, Daniel worked with Kleinman Center for Energy Policy (Penn-affiliated research lab) for one year; there he helped develop Kinetic Building Façade Prototypes in order to promote indoor light quality and save energy using cutting-edge hydrophilic materials. Daniel also holds a Master of Architecture degree (accredited by National Architectural Accrediting Board) from Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. In the meantime, he worked with Council on Tall Buildings and Urban habitat for one year conducting research on sustainable living typologies.

Growing up and seeing the critical environmental problems in his hometown, an industrial city from China, Daniel developed a keen interest in creating a built environment with sustainability and occupancy health and well-being. To achieve this, he believes it is necessary to bridge the gaps between building science and medical science. Thus, he chooses to join Delos Labs, to keep shaping his path towards that way.
