Biography

Michael joined PNNL in 2009 as a Senior Engineer following twelve years in the commercial semiconductor industry. His work experience includes stints with Motorola, ON Semiconductor, and a CMOS image sensor start-up, and in various functions including device engineering and reliability, circuit design, application support, and technical marketing. His current efforts are focused on supporting the Department of Energy Solid-State Lighting program, primarily in the areas of Connected Lighting System technology evaluation and demonstration, standards and specification development, and the estimation of lighting energy end-use consumption. Michael is a member of IES, IEEE, and ASHRAE; serves on multiple standards development committees; and consults with numerous energy efficiency organizations, specification bodies, and early adopters.
