Dana Miller is an MS student in Building Science at UC Berkeley focused on controls and data analysis for energy-efficient HVAC systems. She received an MS in Civil Engineering in UC Berkeley in 2017 and a BS in Environmental Engineering from Yale University in 2012. She has six years of experience with indoor air quality sampling, particularly bioaerosols, including fieldwork in the US, Singapore, and China. From 2012-2016, she worked at a national research center in Singapore on sequencing-based analysis of environmental samples and completed training courses for the Singapore Certified Energy Manager program. At CBE, Dana is working on field studies testing new control strategies for radiant-cooled commercial buildings and integrating ceiling fans with smart thermostats in multifamily housing. Her interests include building performance, demand response, fault detection, indoor air quality, and open source software.
