Professor Carbonnier, nicknamed Dr. Carbon to his students, is an architect and building science researcher driven to decarbonize the built environment. He received his Bachelor of Architecture from Woodbury University, Master of Science in Regenerative Design from Cal Poly Pomona, and PhD from the University of Oregon. His research includes innovating passive energy solutions to support human wellness, health, and productivity. Dr. Carbon lectured at Cal Poly Pomona’s School of Architecture where he advanced evidence-based design to ever-changing environmental forces.
