After completing his B.S. in Architecture at the University of Idaho Moscow campus, Dylan wanted to pursue an M. Architecture in an urban environment and also explore building design engineering. He joined the Integrated Design Lab as a student because of the collaborative environment between architects and engineers. Dylan completed his M. Architecture in 2017, with an emphasis in urban planning and net-zero/energy efficient building design, and continues to work for the lab on a wide range of projects from Energy Modeling to Daylighting Design.
Interim Director, Integrated Design Lab

Ken Baker has been working in building energy efficiency since 1978. His 1982 Master of Architecture degree from the University of Idaho focused on energy and resource efficient construction techniques and the use of local-based materials to create vernacular and sustainable buildings. He is an experienced educator, facilitator, mediator and writer. He is the co-author with Jana Kemp of the Greenwood Publishing Co. book, Building Community in Buildings: The Design and Culture of Dynamic Workplaces. Ken teaches energy code compliance and implementation strategies throughout the U.S. and has worked on energy code development and implementation since 1986. Ken was the Senior Manager, Codes & Standards for the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance from 2014 through 2018. He is currently Interim Director of the U of I Integrated Design Lab.

Jubin is a M.S in Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Idaho in Boise. He works as a Research Assistant at the Integrated Design lab and is currently working on using IR cameras for building controls. Jubin earned his B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from BVDUCOE, Pune, India. He previously worked as a Junior Mechanical Engineer for AJAD facilities management in Abu-Dhabi, UAE and also as an Energy plant-IH for the University of Idaho in Moscow. His interests include achieving sustainability in the built environment, integration of nature and technology to improve efficiency, re-shaping societies and improving the quality of life.
Research Assistant Professor
Services: P.E., Energy Modeling, Teaching Engineering Basic/Advanced topics and Software, and Technical Design Assistance.
Dr. Woods is a licensed mechanical engineer who started working at the IDL as a graduate student in 2013. His dissertation used energy models paired with weather forecasts to predict how a radiant slab should be managed to maximize occupant comfort. His current research focus is on the integration of surface temperatures into building energy management systems. Dr. Woods has taught courses in advanced thermodynamics and energy modeling. In the office, he spends his time working on energy models and estimating savings from energy upgrades; out of the office he is usually fly fishing or gardening. Dr. Woods earned his B.S. from Montana State University, his M.S. from Boise State University and his Ph.D. from the University of Idaho.

Lyndsay received her Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Design and Architecture from Montana State University in Bozeman. She now works at the IDL while pursuing her Masters of Architecture at the U of I Boise campus starting Fall 2019. Her design work explores sustainable design with a social and community-centric focus. She is excited to be back in her hometown of Boise and be a part of the community again. Her goal is to graduate in the Spring of 2021 and begin pursuing licensure as an architect in the state of Idaho.
