Georg Reichard is an Associate Professor of Building Construction and a principal faculty member of the Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech.
Previously he was an Assistant Professor at Graz University of Technology in Austria, where he has been teaching and researching from 1996 to 2004. From 2002 to 2003 he took a sabbatical leave to conduct energy research at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, which was supported by the Austrian Science Fund and the US Department of Energy.

His research deals with numerical methods, simulation and data models, in particular in the area of building sciences. In his current research, he focuses on building performance, energy efficiency in buildings, retrofitting solutions, systems integration, integrated control strategies and smart building materials - using modeling and simulation assessment techniques to improve our buildings, their systems and operation processes.

Georg Reichard holds a Masters Degree and a Doctoral Degree in Civil Engineering from Graz University of Technology. For his doctoral theses he received the Energy-Technology-Program Award from the Upper-Austrian Government and for his stay at Berkeley he was awarded an Erwin-Schroedinger Fellowship.
