Dr. Sabeh got the nickname "Dr. Greenhouse" from the KOLD News team in Tucson, AZ when she was interviewed by weatherman Chuck George to promote her upcoming Evaporative Cooling Workshop (2007).
Nadia Sabeh, PhD, PE, LEED AP
Dr. Nadia Sabeh (aka. "Dr. Greenhouse") is an Agricultural and Mechanical Engineer with nearly 20 years of experience designing climate management systems (HVAC) for indoor plant production facilities, including greenhouses, vertical farms, plant factories, container farms, cannabis grows, and mushroom houses.
Dr. Sabeh is a licensed Mechanical Engineer in Sacramento, CA.
In 2007, she received her PhD in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering from the University of Arizona’s Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC). Her research focused on optimizing ventilation and evaporative cooling systems for tomato production greenhouses, with the goals of reducing water and energy use while optimizing climate control.
As a Masters student at the Pennsylvania State University, Sabeh tested ventilation schemes for the uniform distribution of conditioned air in commercial mushroom production houses. Nadia received her B.S. from the University of California-Davis, where her love for controlled environment agriculture began as an intern on a shiitake mushroom farm in southern Idaho.
Dr. Sabeh's dream is to integrate indoor agriculture into the built environment, connecting human and plant environments, and transforming the urban landscape into a source for locally grown food.
