Amir Rezaei, Ph.D., LEED, BEMP

High-Performance Building Engineering


Amir is an engineer and self-proclaimed energy data geek. As a high-performance building analyst, he continually pushes the boundaries of performance modeling and analytics to support the design of high-performance buildings. 

Amir works hard to help his clients estimate the energy and carbon emission impact of their buildings and portfolios by integrating data for better action and storytelling. Specifically, he is advancing parametric modeling and optimization workflows to analyze and visualize building design decisions during early design. Amir develops robust space solutions that allow design teams and building owners to explore the energy implications of thousands of unique combinations of building design attributes.
