    overview
    • This upcoming summer, I was selected as a student scholar to research the environmental/cultural/historical needs of Paranapiacaba, Sao Paulo, Brazil. There, I will be developing a sustainability assessment concerning conservation and restoration for the community, which the municipality hopes to use in their dossier to apply as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will be working with University of Michigan Environmental Engineering Professor Jose Alfaro as well as University of Sao Paolo professors and students to help develop this assessment.
