Student
Zach Berzolla

Zach is a Masters students in the Building Technology program at MIT. His current research is focused on expanding the reach of existing urban building energy modeling tools to study collections of non-contiguous buildings. He is interested in developing these tools further to study how best to integrate renewable energy into urban energy systems. Zach received a B.E. in Energy Systems from Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering and a B.A. in Physics from Middlebury College. He's been nerding out about buildings since high school and got his first taste of buildings-related research working in the Commercial Buildings Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, CO. When he's not at his desk Zach can be found skiing, sailing, baking, or reading a book.
