Graduate Research Assistant
The University of Texas at San Antonio
Bringing my academic background in psychology to architecture and preservation technology, my focus is on preserving historical sites that have strong cultural significance within communities. I currently work as a Graduate Research Assistant for the Center for Cultural Sustainability, writing and conducting research on sustainable building performance of a National Historic Landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site, in addition to my graduate architectural studies. With this concentration on sustainability and preservation, my future goals include using the latest technologies to retrofit historic structures to maintain their cultural value while also meeting the environmental needs of future generations.
