research overview

  • My experience as an entrepreneur has manipulated the lens through which I view the built environment and how we move within it. For the last ten years, I have been working at the level of micro-mobility, specifically human-powered vehicles and community, establishing a neighborhood bike shop/community space.  The human-powered vehicle is a small but integral detail in discussing infrastructure, energy consumption, and quality of life. The human-powered vehicle scale creates space for communities to come together through familiar but equitable environments.

courses taught

  • ENVD 1010 - Studio 1: Introduction to Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
    The first of four introductory studios introduces students to concepts and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale. In an immersive project-based studio environment students develop the foundation of design communication and thinking through a series of hands-on projects with physical outcomes.
  • ENVD 1130 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Landscape Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
    Building on skills learned from the introductory studio, this course expands the skills and knowledge needed for the practice of landscape architecture. With a focus on resilient design and an exploration through multiple scales, students design ecological systems in an urban context.
  • ENVD 1140 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Planning and Urban Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    Through a small-scale urban planning and design project, students explore solutions to challenges in dynamic urban systems. Builds on knowledge and skills gained in the introductory studios to explore the human and environmental dimensions of intertwined systems within the built environment.
  • ENVD 2014 - Special Topics: Theory, History and Historiography of Environmental Design for no
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023
    Addresses variable topics in theory and criticism, history and historiography of environmental design.
  • ENVD 3100 - Environmental Design Studio 3
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Exposes students to a sequence of design investigations that lead to the development of design concepts for critical evaluation and discussion. The intent of this introductory design studio is to expose students to the fundamental design practices that are common to the disciplines of environmental design, planning, urban design and landscape design - that share the responsibility fro shaping the designed environment. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 3122.
  • EPOD 2004 - History and Theory of Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Provides a general overview of the theories that inform design, while focusing on 20th century history and theory around the making of products. Recommended corequisite: EPOD 2100.
  • EPOD 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    Introduces students to innovative emerging technologies and techniques in digital fabrication and design through a project-based studio environment. Students will be asked to develop design solutions that could be leveraged to benefit humanity through material investigations, cradle-to-cradle methodology, and more advanced methods in design optimization.
