Steve Snyder

Steve Snyder is currently a part-time student pursing a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering at Drexel University. His research is focused on the calibration of whole building energy simulation models to actual building performance data. During the day Steve works as an energy services / smart building technology engineer for Johnson Controls. His primary job responsibilities include: energy engineering consulting, technical energy assessments of large commercial buildings (including laboratories, data centers, low- and high-rise office buildings, etc.), retro-commissioning, calibrated energy simulation, and remote analytical services (e.g., monitoring based-commissioning, fault detection and diagnostics, etc.). Steve is a Certified Energy Manager with the Association of Energy Engineers.

Steve graduated from Arizona State University in 2011 with a M.S. in the Built Environment. His masters research involved tracer-gas based calibration of multi-zone air flow simulation models. Prior to joining ASU, Steve worked as an HVAC design engineer-in-training at the architectural engineering firm EwingCole in Philadelphia, PA. Steve received a B.S. in Architectural Engineering from Drexel University in 2008.
