Travis Ashley joined the staff of PNNL in 2017 as a DOE sponsored intern. His work focused on supporting the on-going energy efficiency research and development work being performed in the PNNL Lab Homes. One of the highlights of his contributions to the Lab Homes research included the automation of data analysis using R programming language, which saved the project approximately 250 hours a year.

Currently, Travis is an Associate Computer Scientist and is continuing his support to the Lab Homes project, and he is mostly working on various EED cybersecurity projects. He is a full time student pursuing his Master's degree in Computer Science at WSU Tri-Cities.
