Philip Haves is the Leader of the Simulation Research Group. He has worked on different aspects of commercial buildings since 1986, with particular interests in simulation and in building operations. He is a Fellow of ASHRAE, the chair of its Technical Committee on Energy Calculations and a former Chair of its Technical Committee on Building Operation Dynamics. He is the immediate past president of IBPSA-USA, the US affiliate of the International Building Performance Simulation Association. He has a BA in Physics from Oxford University and a PhD in Radio Astronomy from Manchester University.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP Nikola Kravik at nkravik at willdan.com<mailto:nkravik at willdan.com>  (no later than Friday, March 13th; 12pm PST).
I encourage everyone to take the FREE Shuttle that goes up to the lab. If you must drive and need a parking pass please email me so I can coordinate that with the site folks and get you the proper entrance/parking permit.
Thank you, Nikola
