Mr. Boudreaux is an R & D staff member at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the Building Technologies Research and Integration Center. He has a B.S. and M.S. in physics with a concentration in optics. Early in his career, he worked in biomedical optics to aid in non-invasive diagnostics. Working on the optics for a fiber-optic-based building lighting project led him to his current position working in energy efficiency of buildings. His research has included deep energy retrofits, advanced residential appliances, and moisture durability of energy-efficient envelope components. His main current interest is non-destructive testing applied to the building envelope to ensure durable performance.
