Joseph Hagerman is the former project manager of the Building Technologies group at the Federation of American Scientists, Washington, DC. As project manager, Hagerman conducted research in new building technologies while demonstrating these technologies in the public sector. Currently, FAS’s building interests address environmental and energy injustice in affordable housing through the development of energy efficient, advanced wall systems. Hagerman is a graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2001. In 2006, Hagerman completed a Masters of Science degree in Civil Engineering at the Fu Foundation School of Engineering, Columbia University. His academic work focused on engineering mechanics and construction technology. While at Columbia, Hagerman interned with Steven Winter Associates (SWA) in Norwalk, CT specializing in building systems consulting. In 2005, Hagerman won the Metropolis Next Generation Design prize for developing a manufacturing strategy to cost-effectively deliver bioremediating plant material inside open cell interlocking concrete pavers entitled “biopavers.” He was also awarded the 2005 Rafael Viñoly Fellowship giving him the opportunity to conduct architectural based research with Rafael Viñoly Architects (RVA), an internationally renowned design firm. During his fellowship, Hagerman researched new environmentally high performance building materials and demonstrated new green roofing technologies.  Joseph Hagerman is currently serving as the interum head of the Building Technologies Program at the Department of Energy.
