Nathaniel Jones

Nathaniel Jones recently defended his PhD thesis in the Building Technology program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studies daylighting, visual comfort, and building- and urban-scale energy simulation in the Sustainable Design Lab with Christoph Reinhart. He is also the developer of Accelerad, a suite of GPU-based lighting and daylighting simulation tools used by architects, engineers, and educators around the world.

Nathaniel is active in the building science community and serves as chair of the International Building Performance Simulation Association-USA chapter’s subcommittee on emerging simulation technologies. He is the author of multiple journal and conference papers related to building energy and daylighting simulation, and he has regularly been an invited speaker on the application of parallel computation to building simulation.
