Life cycle assessment of water use related to buildings; green roofs
Sustainable water use in the built environment; effects of the built environment on watersheds
Transdisciplinary multi-stakeholder decision making frameworks
Primary research work is in improving the environmental performance of buildings and the built environment including environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) in the building domain. Recent water-related research has included monitoring and life cycle assessment of green roof systems and the development of a multi-stakeholder development planning framework.
