Jared Langevin

Jared Langevin is a Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office. He recently completed a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering at Drexel University, where his research focused on measuring and modeling the adaptive interactions between human building occupants and their surrounding thermal environments, examining the links between these interactions and Indoor Environmental Quality and building energy use outcomes. Jared’s Ph.D. research was funded by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and has received several awards, including an ASHRAE Grant-In-Aid with Member Club Designation and Drexel’s Best Dissertation Award for Mathematical Sciences and Engineering. Before entering into his graduate studies at Drexel, Jared received a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University.
