Research Interest

My research is focused broadly on environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, and green buildings. More specifically, I am interested in policy-based mechanisms – such as building codes, zoning and financial incentives – that encourage innovation in green building design. I am also interested in interventions that can influence occupant behavior in buildings, and how occupant behavior impacts building performance. I am LEED-accredited by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and prior to beginning doctoral work at Bloustein, I worked for a number of years on policy, economic development and sustainability projects in New York City.
