Education

  • Dr. Tabares holds a PhD in Architectural Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University, an MSc in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University and a BSc in Engineering Physics from the Monterrey Institute of Technology.

Research

  • Dr. Tabares research interests are in building energy simulation, thermal storage, green roofs, heat transfer applied to buildings and buildings integration with the smart grid.
  • Dr. Tabares comes to Colorado School of Mines after being a Research Engineer at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) where he developed the simulation environment for NRELs Smart Power Lab. He was a developer of NREL building simulation/optimization tool BEopt. Before becoming a Research Engineer, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at NREL where he led NREL technical research on phase change materials in collaboration with the Department of Energy Building Envelope and Windows R&D program, Oak Ridge National Lab, and Fraunhofer CSE. He also validated and improved the finite-difference/phase change material (PCM) model in EnergyPlus and analyzed pre-cooling strategies in residential buildings to reduce electric peak demand.
  • Dr. Tabares work at PennState on vegetated roofs has been recognized with the 2009 Crosby Field Award, 2009 Willis H. Carrier Award and 2009 Best Poster Award by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the 2011 Green Roof Research Award of Excellence by Green Roof for Healthy Cities (GRHC) and a NSF video production. He was also a Student Project Engineer at the Industrial Assessment Center at Colorado State University (CSU), where he performed more than 20 energy assessment to manufacturing plants in Colorado, New Mexico and North Dakota.
