Two researchers recognized as TEES Center Fellows
Dr. Jeff Haberl, associate director of the Energy Systems Laboratory, and Dr. Frank Shipman, associate director of the Center for the Study of Digital Libraries, have been named 2015 Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Center Fellows. The new award recognizes outstanding individual initiative and performance in support of the TEES mission of research, workforce development, technology development and transfer, and international outreach and collaboration.
Haberl is a professor of architecture and associate department head for research in the Department of Architecture at Texas A&M University. He has spent nearly three decades performing building energy research. His areas of interest are in HVAC design, energy conservation savings measurement techniques, metering and monitoring equipment, calibrated building energy simulations, building energy data visualization, on-line diagnostics for HVAC equipment, solar energy heating and cooling systems, solar energy measurements, code compliance calculations, and emissions reductions calculations.
Shipman is a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M. His research group has developed a range of software environments supporting access to and analysis of a wide range of content types, including texts, image, audio, video, and scientific and sensor data. His current research projects include the design and evaluation of an environment for heterogeneous data analysis, games motivating data science skills, and digital libraries for sign language content. He also is engaged in long-term external collaborations investigating the ownership and reuse of social media content and the design of tools for creating and consuming interactive video.
