Clark, Jordan


Dr. Jordan Clark studies novel ways of providing for environmental control, energy efficiency, and power demand management in commercial, residential and agricultural buildings.  His research interests include modeling of buildings and indoor environments, sensor hardware, HVAC systems, and interaction of buildings with larger energy systems.  He has contributed to development of several hyper-efficient cooling and dehumidification products and volunteers for efforts around standardization of testing and rating of hardware for smart control of indoor environments at ASHRAE and HVI. He is currently leading multiple federally funded projects at Ohio State and serves as Chief Technology Officer for CoolYield Labs, LLC.

Dr. Clark received his PhD and MS from the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a member of the Building Energy and Environments Research Group.  Before starting at OSU, Dr. Clark held postdoctoral appointments at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Dr. Clark is a native Ohioan and lifelong Buckeye fan.
