Michael Hamilton is a M.S. student in Environmental Engineering at Drexel University. He is currently working on a project funded by the Energy Efficient Building (EEB) HUB that seeks to quantify the contributions of financial and non-financial metrics to the retrofit decision process through survey work with building owners and other industry professionals. The results of this work are being cross-referenced with energy modeling work (also done by BSEG) to refine projections of the adoption of energy-efficient measures in the Philadelphia region as part of the EEB HUB Policy, Markets, and Behavior (PMB) macro-modeling effort.
More broadly, he is interested in risk analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and environmental modeling in general. Prior to coming to Drexel, Michael worked for five years in the fields of architecture and environmental consulting. He holds a Bachelor’s degree with honors from Dartmouth College.
