About the Scholarship:

Dr. Ralph T. Muehleisen has led research to increase the energy efficiency and resiliency of the built environment while improving the quality of life. His projects include urban science and engineering, stochastic building energy modeling, reduced order building energy modeling, risk analysis of building energy retrofits, Bayesian Calibration methods for building energy models, agent-based models for understanding adoption of retrofit technologies, smart building/smart grid integration, and the development of new technologies for measuring building infiltration and reducing energy losses through windows. Dr. Muehleisen is the author of over 150 publications and is a frequent invited speaker in the areas of urban science and engineering, building energy modeling, architectural acoustics and noise control. For his continued contributions in the fields of engineering and science, advancement in education and research, unwavering mentorship of others, unremitting inspiration to the building simulation community, and prominence as an industry innovator the CHIBPSA Board of Directors would like to honor Dr. Muehleisen by establishing a Scholarship in his name.
