Tuesday, April 23rd, 6-8pm

Speaker: Kristen Parrish, Ph.D., Faculty in the ASU School of Sustainability and the Built Environment

Speaker Topic: Energy Conservation in Construction and Design for Buildings, Landscapes and Communities: is Energy Efficiency an Environmental Resource?

Dr. Parrish will explore how energy efficiency in buildings promotes environmental health and air quality in urban centers, at both the individual and urban scale. She will discuss whether energy efficiency can truly promote environmental protection and discuss the seemingly competing societal goals of growth and sustainability.

Speaker bio:
Dr. Parrish’s work focuses on integrating energy efficiency measures into building design, construction, and operations. She works on novel design processes that facilitate energy-efficient development of the built environment. Her work also explores how principles of lean manufacturing facilitate energy-efficiency in the commercial building industry. Prior to joining ASU, Kristen was a Postdoctoral Fellow and Scientific Engineering Associate at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the Building Technologies and Urban Systems Department. She worked in the Commercial Buildings group, where she co-managed a Department of Energy-funded technical assistance program that reduced energy consumption in new and existing commercial buildings by breaking down technical and non-technical barriers to energy efficiency. She holds a BS and MS in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan and a PhD in Civil Engineering Systems from University of California Berkeley.
