Coming from the background of urban planning, and as a first-year graduate student in MLA & MSI in U-M, I am interested in using big data to ameliorate environmental problems.
I am currently a postgraduate student majoring in landscape architecture at Tongji University. With research experiences of regional landscape ecological planning and green infrastructure planning, I have strong interest in ecosystem services (especially water-related) and water resource management. In my free time, I play my clarinet and do contemporary dance.
Izzy is entering her second year at SEAS, pursuing a dual masters degree in Landscape Architecture and Ecosystem Science and Management. She previously attended Iowa State University where she studied Global Resource Systems and enjoyed studying/working abroad every summer. Her previous research has been focused on urban forestry and she looks forward to diving into the literature about climate change and water quality!
