Christian Kohler is a researcher at the Windows and Daylighting Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. For nearly 20 years he has been involved in all aspects of software development for various tools (THERM, WINDOW, Optics5) and the development of highly insulating and dynamic windows. His activities include algorithm development, user support, training, developing embedded controllers and experimental work on highly insulating and dynamic windows. Prior to that he was working at the LBNL Infrared Thermography research facility. He received his Masters degree in Building Physics in 1997 from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands.
