Assistant Professor, School of Architecture, Syracuse University

Focus Areas: Urban energy visualization and design decision-making tools; building envelope technologies and simulations for human interaction and design; virtual and augmented reality energy simulations

Faculty Fellows Projects:

2018 Projects
Professor Krietemeyer’s current research is developing an interactive energy dashboard for visualizing and managing electricity use at the individual and community levels. The dashboard will be a critical tool in the development of community energy programs that incorporate renewables, storage and demand response, creating economic value and improving the environment.
2017 Projects
Professor Krietemeyer’s current research focuses on the development of an urban building energy model to simulate, test, and visualize future scenarios and strategies in order to: 1) support clean and resilient functioning of the electric grid; 2) minimize energy by buildings while improving occupant comfort; 3) match external energy resources with building energy demand. The integration of energy datasets and visualization methods enable the design, testing, and identification of opportunities for energy conservation, production, and architectural and urban planning design strategies and guidelines for clean and renewable energy.
2016 Projects
Professor Krietemeyer has been conducting research in hybrid-reality visualization tools within the Interactive Design and Visualization Lab (IDVL) at the SyracuseCoE Headquarters. As a Faculty Fellow, Professor Krietemeyer is expanding the research to include simulation of fluid dynamics at the urban scale. The broader aims are to extend the visualization capacity of current software tools being developed to create a link with CFD analysis software, and to make the IDVL more applicable to other SyracuseCoE labs and faculty.
