Stefano Schiavon, PhD, is Professor of Architecture and Civil & Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley and Associate Director of CEDR. His research is focused on finding ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings and, at the same time, increase indoor environmental quality. Stefano has worked on research relate to personal comfort models and systems, occupant satisfaction, underfloor air distribution (UFAD), radiant systems, building energy simulation, air movement, LEED, thermal comfort and statistical modeling. He has experience with laboratory measurements, post-occupancy evaluation and building performance simulation. He is involved in both the Center for the Built Environment and as a P.I. in the SinBerBEST project.

At the University of Padova, Italy, he received a PhD in Energy Engineering (2008), and an MS in Mechanical Engineering (2005) with honors. He received the 2010 REHVA Young Scientist Award and the 2013 ASHRAE Ralph Nevins Physiology and Human Environment Award. In 2019 he won three Best Papers Awards from Building and Environment.
