I participated in a small seminar class that explored possible concepts for a Buffalo Solar Decathlon House back in Spring 2013. After taking a year off after graduation to pursue other interests and hearing that the University at Buffalo was accepted to the 2015 Solar Decathlon, I wanted to continue working on the project throughout my graduate studies. It is a great opportunity to get real-world experience on an interdisciplinary project.
I am involved in building relationships with sponsors from the local community to help make this project. I am also active in the architectural design portion of the project.
