R&D Staff

Bio

Diana Hun works as an R&D staff at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Her research areas include improving the airtightness of buildings while minimizing risks due to potential building material deterioration and indoor air quality problems. Moreover, she is investigating the integration of the latest developments in materials and manufacturing into building envelopes. For instance, she leads an interdisciplinary team that aims to decrease energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in the US and China by developing the next generation of precast insulated architectural panels. Hun received a PhD in Civil Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
