INFILTRATION AND SIMULATION – MODELING AIR TIGHTNESS IN BUILDING
Wednesday April 17th, 2013, 6 – 7:30pm
Lisa Ng, Mechanical Engineer at NIST
“Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption”
Lisa graduated from Drexel University with a B. S. in Architectural Engineering, concentration on HVAC systems. While at Drexel, she completed co-ops with a construction management, a project management, and an HVAC design/consultation firm. After graduation, she lived and worked in Taipei, Taiwan for two years for an architect as a mechanical engineer.
In 2005, Lisa began her Ph.D. work at Drexel University, focusing her work on indoor air quality and sensor placement. In 2010, Lisa graduated with a Ph. D. in Civil Engineering with a thesis titled “Framework for the Utilization of Forward and Inverse Airflow Models in Systematic Sensor System Design for Indoor Air”.
After graduation, Lisa completed a one year post-doc at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Currently, she is a mechanical engineer in the IAQ and Ventilation Group at the NIST in Gaithersburg, MD. Her work includes airflow, IAQ, and energy simulations, as well as IAQ sampling in a net zero house.
