I am passionate about creating better systems to support humanity's needs and aspirations. I believe that there is immense opportunity to design and operate man-made systems with less impact to earth systems. Engineers are responsible for making the majority of the products and systems we utilize every day. I am also keenly aware of how critical social sciences and the humanities are to the pursuit of a sustainable future.

 

My journey into the fields of industrial ecology and sustainable engineering began over 15 years ago. The opportunity to share the knowledge that I have acquired via coursework and research is a dream come true. Please consider joining me!
