About

Dr. Clark received his PhD in Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering and MS in Architectural Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a member of the Building Energy and Environments Research Group.  He has a BS in Civil Engineering and a BA in Philosophy from Stevens Institute of Technology.  Dr. Clark is a native Ohioan and lifelong Buckeye fan, enjoys trail running and nurses an appetite for philosophy when he can.

Dr. Clark investigates the physical processes affecting energy consumption, thermal environments, and air quality in sustainable buildings. 

Most recently his work has focused on looking at how we might leverage the recent explosion in sensing technology, communication, and data analytics capabilities to optimize heating, ventilation and air-conditioning devices and create smarter, more energy-efficient, healthy buildings.  This includes the development of energy and airflow simulation tools to quantify the efficacy of ventilation control strategies in homes with “smart ventilation” and investigations into low-cost particulate matter sensors for integration into smart building control systems.

He is also interested in the development of next-generation mechanical equipment to reduce the amount of energy end use and carbon generation attributable to building operation, including work on membrane-based chemical air conditioning and low-flow high-capture kitchen ventilation technology.
