Eleanor Lee is a Staff Scientist and licensed architect in the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division. She has worked at LBNL for 18 years conducting research to improve commercial building energy-efficiency using state-of-the-art intelligent façade and daylighting technologies integrated with lighting controls and HVAC systems. Investigative methods include simulations, laboratory and field tests, and monitored demonstrations to engineer and quantify the energy efficiency potential and human factor impacts of emerging technologies and to accelerate their adoption into the marketplace. Lee has received two Architecture/ Progressive Architecture Awards for Architectural Research and has published over 50 publications including two books on high-performance window and daylighting systems for commercial buildings. Prior to working at LBNL, she evaluated pedestrian level winds and the natural ventilation potential of buildings with a boundary layer wind tunnel at UC Berkeley. She has practiced at several small and large San Francisco Bay Area architectural firms. She holds a BA and Masters degree in Architecture at the University of California at Berkeley.
