Rick Diamond is a Staff Scientist and Deputy of Research Operations of the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His research has focused on consumer behavior and user interactions with the built environment, including post occupancy and energy evaluations of housing, schools, and workplace environments. Diamond has co-led efforts for the U.S. Department of Energy on developing a social science R&D roadmap for the building sector, and has recently led an effort to provide technical assistance on the greening of the U.S. House of Representatives. He is also a Senior Advisor at the California Institute for Energy and Environment, (CIEE), where he is working to develop support for research and development in behavior and decision making related to energy efficiency.

Diamond has a B.A. in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard College, and an M. Arch. and Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. He has been on the faculty at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, the California College of Arts and Crafts, and as a visiting professor in the Architecture Department at UC Berkeley.

This publications database is an ongoing project, and not all Division publications are represented here yet.
