Studying how engineers and their firms consider the impact of border barriers on wildlife will show the sustainability of such projects.
I am an assistant professor with a joint appointment in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and The Polytechnic School at ASU, where I run re-Engineered, an interdisciplinary group that embeds peace, social justice, and environmental protection in engineering. I am originally from Mumbai, India, but feel equally at home in Michigan or Washington, D.C. (and now, the Valley!). I studied aerospace engineering (specializing in gas dynamics and combustion) and sustainability ethics at the University of Michigan. I then spent three years as a AAAS Fellow in Washington, D.C., first at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the Innovation Team, where I worked on climate change resilience and low-cost air pollution sensors; and then at the U.S. Department of Energy in the Water Power Technologies Office, helping design and run the Wave Energy Prize.
