Jennifer Scheib received her Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in 2004 from the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. During her undergraduate studies, she gained experience in lighting design at Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design in Los Angeles and in LED optics research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Her graduate research focused on metrics for human perception of lighting, using high dynamic range image analysis.
With a desire to learn Radiance, Jennifer joined the Daylighting Analysis Team at Architectural Energy Corporation (AEC) in Boulder where she co-developed Sensor Placement + Optimization Tool (SPOT). While at AEC, she also helped integrate the daylighting and lighting control strategy into the design of the Research Support Facility (RSF), the world’s first, no-added cost, zero energy office building at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Jennifer then joined the Commercial Buildings Research Group at NREL. As a lighting engineer working in the RSF, she researched occupant behavior and lighting controls integration strategies, and supported early-stage technology development projects while serving as the Technical Program Lead for the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator.
More than ten years after graduating from CU Boulder, Jennifer rejoined the Lighting Program as an instructor and will maintain a joint appointment with NREL.
