Erynne van Zee
As an environmental engineer and landscape designer, I am curious about how water intersects with human and ecological systems across scales, from molecular water quality to watershed health to water-sensitive cities. I am passionate about centering local community expertise and decision-making in urban design to collaboratively address the impacts of climate change and ensure multi-functional infrastructure investments are equitable, beautiful, and place-based. Outside of work, I love outdoor adventures and cooking spicy foods!
