Darryl Dickerhoff is a Principal Research Associate at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and has studied energy use in building since 1980. His emphasis has been in developing measurement techniques related to air flow including: infiltration, ventilation and air leakage of the envelope and thermal distribution systems of both residential and commercial buildings. He is a collaborator with UC Berkeley’s Center for the Built Environment, CBE, where he researches issues related to underfloor ventilation systems. He has extensive experience in field measurements of the energy use in buildings. He is an expert in the use of tracer gases and has developed one of the few multiple tracer gas systems.
