About the presenter…
Chris Mackey is a building scientist and designer at Payette Architects as well as a recent graduate of MIT’s Masters of Architecture and Masters of Science in Building Technology programs. His completed thesis involved the development of software to produce high-resolution thermal comfort maps of buildings off of EnergyPlus results as well as a new suite of spatial thermal comfort metrics that mirror those currently used to quantify daylight.
Chris has intimate knowledge of the following languages/software: Python, Grasshopper, Rhino (including RhinoCommon), EnergyPlus, and OpenStudio. In his free time, Chris is an avid contributor to the Ladybug + Honeybee environmental analysis plug-ins for Grasshopper and is currently building a new “insect” to link these two plug-ins and the Rhino/Grasshopper interface to macro-scale climate modeling engines and data sets.
