Dr. Tianzhen Hong is a Staff Scientist, Principal Investigator, and Deputy Head of the Building Technology Department. He is a registered mechanical engineer in California and a LEED accredited professional. He leads the Urban Systems Group and a research team working on a portfolio of projects, focusing on data, methods, modeling and simulation tools, and policy for design and operation of low energy buildings and sustainable urban systems. He is leading the EnergyPlus development at LBNL, was the chief developer and product manager of VisualDOE version 4.0 (a GUI to DOE-2.1E), and was the founding developer of DeST (a building energy modeling program widely used in China). He was a key member of the teams that developed building energy standards for California, ASHRAE and India. He established and chairs the ASHRAE Multidisciplinary Task Group on occupant behavior in buildings. He actively contributed to international collaborations such as the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center on Building Energy Efficiency, IEA EBC Annex 21, 53, 66 and 79. He was Operating Agent of Annex 66 and co-lead of Subtask 3 of Annex 79. He received B.Eng. and Ph.D. in HVACR, and B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from Tsinghua University, China.
