Network Dynamic Lab

The Network Dynamic Lab focuses on the investigation of engineering network dynamics of industrial and societal importance. NDL’s current research includes

(1) achieving sustained energy conservation in the built environment by coupling energy use with occupant networks and examining inter-building network phenomena,

(2) examining the trending increase in global outsourcing of engineering services and its impact on project network productivity,

(3) understanding and improving response times by affected human networks during extreme events,

(4) examining the impact of integrated information systems on project networks and the associated virtualization of the workforce.
