Ihab M.K. Elzeyadi, Ph.D., FEIA, LEEDAP is an associate professor of architecture and the director of High Performance Environments laboratory (HiPE) and Façade Innovative Technologies (FIT) testing facility at the School of Architecture & Allied Arts, University of Oregon. Professor Elzeyadi has been engaged in the design, construction, and research of high-performance buildings for more than 20 years. He has conducted grant-supported research on the relationship between people and buildings including daylighting systems effects on health, productivity, and other outcomes as they relate to sustainable design strategies. His studies produced evidence-based design guidelines and design-assistance services on various commercial projects with an emphasis on energy and resource effective design. He is currently working on a number of research projects investigating cost and financial benefits of green and LEED schools, the Green Classroom Toolbox Project for energy retrofits of existing schools, as well as RD&D projects on facade integrated green products and technologies for active envelopes, including innovative prototypes of solar awning and daylighting harvesting systems. Professor Elzeyadi is a fulltime faculty at the Department of Architecture, University of Oregon, where he teaches design studios and courses in sustainable design, and high-performance buildings design and evaluation. His expertise includes building performance and metrics; integrated design and delivery; indoor environmental quality; as well as environmental impacts on human performance and health. He is the president-elect of the Society of Building Science Educators (SBSE), an appointed member to the USGBC Research Advisory Committee, a member of the Illumination Engineering Society (IES), Oregon Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies (OR BEST), Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC), and the Center for Housing Innovation (CHI).
