Biography

Andrea joined the Advanced Lighting Team at PNNL as a Lighting Engineer in 2013. Prior to joining PNNL Andrea participated in a variety of research at the University of Nebraska and Penn State University including: residential real-time energy monitoring, energy modeling, non-visual effects of optical radiation, and psychophysical response to spectra. Her dissertation, Reallocation of Narrow Bands of Spectral Energy: Effect on Brightness Perception and Color Preference, focused on the modification of the spectral power distribution of a source to enhance the perception of brightness and preference. Andrea is currently focused on the demonstration and evaluation of emerging lighting technologies, supporting the DOE solid-state lighting program.
