CBE’s research activities provide a unique training ground for UC Berkeley students to learn advanced skills in building science, often in collaboration with CBE’s consortium of industry leaders. Our graduates have gone on to highly successful careers, including many in leadership positions, in the building sector and beyond. In this Centerline post, we catch up with three alumni — Kit Elsworth, Soazig Kaam, and Sara Tepfer — to learn about their current work roles, what inspires them, and where they are headed.
CBE researchers, students and visiting scholars will present recent findings and design tools at the 2020 ASHRAE Winter Conference on February 1-5 in Orlando.
At the 2019 ASHRAE Winter Conference on January 12th-16th, several CBE faculty, researchers, students and alumni will present recent results and demonstrate new design tools. For those of you not able to attend you can view the PDFs in this blog post.
As 2018 comes to a close, here at CBE we can look back on many successes over the year: More industry partners than ever; new tools for practitioners; numerous publications; new funding, scholarships and awards; and welcoming new graduate students, visitors, and post-docs to our team.
CBE Researchers Present New Methods for Design-phase Analysis of Daylighting, Ventilation and Comfort
The gap between predicted and measured building performance poses an ongoing challenge for design teams and other building industry stakeholders. Because reliable methods for predicting building performance are critical to addressing this challenge, students, researchers and faculty at CBE are developing and testing new approaches to building performance simulation. In this post we describe recent and upcoming papers that discuss new and innovative simulation methods.
CBE’s research mission is supported largely by a talented group of graduate students and visiting student scholars from abroad. This spring, several student team members received merit-based scholarships that will support their studies and participation at professional conferences.
