Dr. Ge received her Ph.D. from the BuildingEngineering program at Concordia University in 2003. She was the Director of Building Science Centre of Excellence at British Columbia Institute of Technology from 2004-2009, where she established the research center, championed a Master of Building Science/Building Engineering program, and developed a major Building Envelope Test Facility. After working in the department of Architectural Science at Ryerson University for over two years from 2010-2012, she joined the department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering at Concordia in Aug. 2012. 

Dr. Ge is a Tier II Concordia University Research Chair (CURC) in High Performance Building Envelope for Climate Resilient Buildings. Her expertise is in large-scale laboratory testing, field monitoring and modeling of hygrothermal performance of building envelopes, and quantifying wind-driven rain loads by field measurements and CFD modeling, and low-energy buildings. Her current research interests include the impact of climate change on wind-driven rain loads, urban micro-climate and building performance; climate resilience building envelopes; dynamic building facades; and low-carbon healthy buildings.
