My name is Joanne. I'm from Chicago. I go to the University of Illinois at Chicago where I am an M.S. in Industrial Engineering candidate.
What sustainability, energy, and community issues are important to you?
I’m strongly interested in passive design, environmental justice, and water management.
What exciting projects/research are you working on now?
I have a few large water infrastructure projects going. I am also working on a few projects with my intern looking at the intersection of sustainability and accessibility.
What are your plans for the next five years?
I want to keep working in sustainability while getting my PhD.
Additional pictures of Joanne are not available. Instead, here are some cats.
What made you want to apply to SISE?
My direct supervisor suggested it and I generally trust her opinion on these things.
What are you most looking forward to doing in Chicago?
Sleeping in my own bed (I live here).
Do you like Cats? If not, are you willing to learn to like cats?
Cats are cool. I foster cats (and dogs) so I guess that speaks for itself.
