Robin Mitchell is a Software Developer in the Windows and Envelope Materials group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), working on many different software projects ranging from engineering analysis of fenestration products to whole building energy analysis. Her most recent software development project has been the SEED Platform, where she works with both developers and users to add features and functionality to the program.

Prior to working at LBNL, she worked for several energy consulting firms, developing software tools for whole building energy analysis as well as building energy audits. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Science, Technology and Public Affairs from UC San Diego, and a Master’s degree in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley.

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