Kamin Whitehouse's research lab is currently focused on energy-efficient smart buildings, an interdisciplinary research area that sits at the boundary between Computer Science and Building Science. Some projects focus on computer system performance (e.g. system reliability) while others focus on building performance (e.g. energy conservation). Highlights from this project include learning thermostats, improved water heating, and non-intrusive occupant tracking in the home.
