Michael Wetter is a Computational Scientist in the Simulation Research Group. His research includes integrating building performance simulation tools into the research process, as well as their use for design and operation of buildings. He did his dissertation at the University of California at Berkeley and at LBNL, where he created the GenOpt optimization program and the BuildOpt building simulation program and where he developed the first building energy optimization technique that provably converges to the optimal building design. He created various software for building energy simulation and optimization, including the Building Controls Virtual Test Bed, the Modelica Buildings library, and the GenOpt optimization program. He is a recipient of the Outstanding Young Contributor Award of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), the president of IBPSA-USA, a member of the board of directors of IBPSA, and a member of ASHRAE.
