New PNNL grant supports research on visual comfort and circadian light exposure

A new grant from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (sub-award from the U.S. Department of Energy) will support research on the impact of visual discomfort on predictions of eye-level light exposure to meet the WELL Building Standard for circadian lighting. Siobhan Rockcastle (PI) and Alen Mahic (Key-personnel) will work with lighting researchers at PNNL to explore the effect of discomfort glare on window-view avoidance, supplemental lighting, and shading system use with a goal to understand the implications that each of these factors have on eye-level light exposure for human health.
