Michael A. Galler

Michael A. Galler is a mechanical engineer in the Mechanical Systems and Controls Group of the Energy and Environment Division (EED) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Mr. Galler is currently working for the Mechanical Systems & Controls Group on the Cybernetic Building Systems project, where his duties include expanding and improving the Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed (VCBT), Visual Test Shell (VTS), the BACnet Data Source (BDS), BACnet Communications DLL (BCD), and BISACS  projects. Mr. Galler is the Principal Investigator for the VCBT project, and is Vice-Chair and a voting member on ASHRAE TC 1.5, and Secretary of ASHRAE GPC 20. Mr. Galler is also actively involved in the Appliance Program, where he has direct involvement in test procedure development for clothes washers.

Mr. Galler previously worked in the Organic Materials group of BFRL, where his work included a computer model of the photolytic degradation of polymers and the preparation of reflectance samples of varying roughness.

Mr. Galler earned a Masters Degree in Materials Science at the University of Maryland at College Park under the supervision of Dr. Mohammed Al-Sheikhly. His Masters thesis concerned the 3-D modeling of the settling and packing of ellipsoids, a topic of relevance to many fields of study.
