Justin is particularly interested in the convergence of IT and building technology in both the commercial and residential markets as well as IoT for agriculture. The focus of his research has primarily been on integrating building science with biological monitoring of honeybees using advanced sensor networks. Justin is very interested in how monitoring of honeybees at a large scale can inform management practices, hive design and ultimately the health of honeybees. Justin hopes to combine his design background with engineering knowledge to solve some of our world’s toughest design problems.

ENVD 1102 - Design and Communication 2
Using both lectures and drawing exercises, this class extends understandings of the representational conventions used by the design professions through its introduction to the possibilities offered by traditional techniques for the advanced practices for design visualization, representation, and communication. Recommended corequisites: ENVD 1104 and ENVD 2003.
ENVD 1104 - Introduction to Environmental Design Methods
Explores the forces and conditions that interact to shape the designed environment. It does so through a lecture sequence and parallel set of design exercises introducing students to the theory and practice of environmental design. It develops student understandings of the central role design thinking plays as the unique process used to effect appropriate change in the designed environment. Recommended corequisites: ENVD 1102 and ENVD 2003.
ENVD 2120 - Environmental Design Studio 1
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 for shaping the designed environment. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 3115.
ENVD 4352 - Special Topics: Computer Methods
Topics include animation and environmental simulation, computational methods of technical evaluation and optimization, and computational mapping and analysis. May be repeated for credit by petition.
