About the Speakers:

Amir Roth, Ph.D. – Technology manager at US Department of Energy

Amir Roth is the Technical Manager for building energy modeling (BEM) tools in the DOE’s Building Technologies Program (BTP). BEM is used in building design and in the development of building energy efficiency codes and ratings, and increasingly in code compliance, building certification, building diagnostics and fault detection, building control system development, and dynamic building control. Among the projects, Amir manages EnergyPlus, DOE’s industry-leading whole building energy modeling engine, and OpenStudio, DOE’s BEM productivity, interoperability, and utility middleware.

Dru Crawley, Ph.D. – Bentley Fellow/ Director, Building Performance Research at Bentley Systems

Dr. Crawley is Bentley Fellow and Director, Building Performance Research, thought leader focusing on building performance, BIM, zero-energy buildings, interoperability, smart cities, and sustainability. He is also an ASHRAE Fellow and an IBPSA Fellow. Before joining Bentley in 2010, Dr. Crawley developed, launched and managed USDOE’s Commercial Building Initiative (zero-energy commercial buildings (now Better Buildings)). He also managed DOE’s building energy software research and development including EnergyPlus, OpenStudio, Energy-10, and DOE-2.

Roger Chang, PE, LEED Fellow – Engineering Leader at DLR Group

Roger Change serves as a firmwide mechanical engineering discipline leader and DC office engineering leader at DLR Group. He is passionate about integrated design and high-performance buildings. His research experience includes work at NIST, collaboration with the Harvard School of Public Health, and natural ventilation work on the first LEED Platinum building in the world, the Philip Merrill Environmental Center. He has experienced LEED from its infancy to what it has become today and regularly speaks at conferences on integrated design and high-performance buildings.

Who is IBPSA?

International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) is a non-profit, international society of building performance simulation researchers, developers, and practitioners, dedicated to improving the built environment.

What does IBPSA seek to do?

Advance and promote the science of building simulation in order to improve the health of occupants, and the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of new and existing buildings.
