Diana Hun is the Subprogram Manager for Building Envelopes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Her research includes investigating the integration of the latest developments in materials and manufacturing techniques into building envelopes. For instance, she leads several interdisciplinary teams that are developing the next generation of precast insulated panels, polymeric vacuum insulation spheres, and self-healing sealants. Other research areas include improving the airtightness of buildings while minimizing risks due to potential building material deterioration and indoor air quality problems. Hun received a PhD in Civil Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
