Dr Fadeyi is a member of the Chartered Iinstitution of Building Services Engineers (UK), Chartered Institute of Building (UK), American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-conditioning Engineers, and the International Facility Management Association.
His professional expertise and research interests focus on creating healthy and energy-efficient indoor environments and process enhancement for a sustainable built environment. He has engaged with more than 60 companies in Singapore to solve their problems through consultation, applied research, innovation and lean transformation projects, continuous education and training (CET) programmes, as well as case study development activities. He has also developed Indoor Air Cartoon Journal (IACJ), an innovative applied learning journal with global readership that provides CET contributions to students, industry, community, and academics.
Before joining SIT, Dr Fadeyi was an assistant professor at the British University in Dubai, UAE. He was concurrently an honorary lecturer at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University, UK. He also had research work experience at the Pennsylvania State University, USA, and Berkeley Education Alliance for Research in Singapore (BEARS).
Dr Fadeyi was the IAQ expert and lead investigator on the IAQ aspect of the applied research project. The primary purpose of the study was to help facility managers make an informed decision on the usage of ionisers to improve IAQ conditions and perception by the occupants of their buildings. Specifically, the objectives were (i) To examine the effectiveness of using bi-polar ioniser in reducing indoor PM2.5 (particulate matters) and TVOCs (total volatile organic compounds) concentrations, and (ii) To examine the effect of using ioniser on office occupants’ perceived air quality and comfort. He led the experimental design and execution, data analysis and interpretation, and report development for the research.
