Graduate Student, MA Landscape Architecture & MS Environment & Resources
Teaching Assistant: Landscape Architecture
Nelson Institute Graduate Student Representative – Environment & Resources Masters Program
I received my BFA from Harrington College of Design in Chicago in 2010 with a focus on sustainable design & architecture and I am currently pursuing a double masters at CALS and Nelson Institute. My graduate research covers urban sustainability, urban watersheds, ecological restoration and environmental policy. I am interested in the correlations between restored natural areas and the potential for social and economic benefits, as well as the policy making process for conservation, development and restoration of natural resources.
Outside of my research at UW – Madison, I work closely with the Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy at University of Illinois – Chicago as a Sustainability Coordinator.
Thesis: A Study of Ecological and Social Benefits of Restoration on an Urban Tributary Stream
