The Thermal House that Song Built: 1940's Home Transformed to Research Lab

November 17, 2022

University of Oklahoma engineer Li Song, Ph.D., never imagined her research would occur in a 1940’s bungalow. Only on the market since 2017, Song thought that smart thermostats – Wi-Fi thermostats – showed the potential for further investigation. She noticed hundreds of computer scientists were collecting data about smart thermostat usage, but few were studying their actual physical systems.
