Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology

I am a civil engineer and environmental sociologist (currently: Assistant Professor of CEE and, by courtesy, Public Policy at Georgia Tech) working on ways to make decision making more just, effective, and informed. Specifically, I study how community and societal priorities can be better incorporated into multicriteria policy and project decisions, mainly related to energy, water, and infrastructure systems. I am particularly interested in changing the decision making-paradigm from relying on a decision maker’s value judgments to routinely assessing and incorporating diverse worldviews from affected communities and society at large.
