I am a rising junior in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, with a concentration in the structural track. I am interested in addressing environmental issues in the world to promote better health and improve living standards and conditions of people. In the summer of 2021, I am interning with Professor Sigrid Adriaenssens on researching for and assessing urban farming techniques and strategies. We are working to build hydroponic, rooftop greenhouses in Baltimore that are more sustainable, accessible, and productive than conventional methods of agriculture. Through this method, we want to bring fresher, healthier, and more nutritious food to the local communities.
