BRENT STEPHENS Indoor Exposures to Outdoor Air Pollution Opening Plenary

SUSAN HANDY The Future of Travel Demand Dr. Susan Handy is a Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy and the Director of the National Center for Sustainable Transportation at the University of California, Davis. Her research interests center on the relationships between transportation and land use, particularly the impact of neighborhood design on travel behavior. Her current work focuses on bicycling as a mode of transportation and strategies for reducing auto dependence. She is a member of the Committee on Women’s Issues in Transportation of the Transportation Research Board and is an associate editor of the Journal of Transport and Health. She holds a B.S.E. in Civil Engineering from Princeton University, an M.S. in Civil Engineering from Stanford University, and a PhD in City and Regional Planning from the University of California at Berkeley.

Brent Stephens is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago, IL. He also directs the Built Environment Research Group at IIT where he and his students investigate interactions between energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and environmental exposures within the built environment. Dr. Stephens also serves as Secretary of the International Society for Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), Chair of the ISIAQ Scientific and Technical Committee (STC) 21 on Ventilation, and Member and Research Subcommittee Chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee 2.4 on Particulate Air Contaminants and Particulate Contaminant Removal Equipment. Dr. Stephens has published over 35 peer-reviewed journal articles, editorials, and commentaries and his research has been funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (APSF), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) through the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), and the National Air Filtration Association (NAFA) Foundation.

AMY PRUDEN Answering the Call: The Need for Modern Academics to Step Up as Leaders in Addressing our Failing Water Infrastructure

Opening Plenary

MIKE WALSH Sustainability Applied: Using Smart Cities as a Framework for Engineers Mike Walsh has over 20 years of experience designing, developing and utilizing computer based learning and communications tools to engage citizens and stakeholders in the process of creating sustainable, livable cities and regions. As one of the company’s founders and the chief architect of MetroQuest, Mr. Walsh has been instrumental in evolving the MetroQuest technology from an early prototype into a web-delivered, software as a service, stakeholder engagement platform.

Amy Pruden is a Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA USA. Her primary expertise is on tracking pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes through environmental systems and developing engineering control strategies for protecting public health. Her broad research mission is to advance the sustainability and health of our water systems through fundamental understanding of microbial ecology. Dr. Pruden received the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering in 2007 and the Paul L. Busch Award in 2014. Her 2014 article “Balancing Water Sustainability and Public Health Goals in the Face of Growing Concerns about Antibiotic Resistance,” was recognized as the Editor’s Choice Best Feature Article in Environmental Science and Technology. Dr. Pruden’s research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, Water Research Foundation, Water Environment Research Foundation, Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Dr. Pruden will speak about her role in assisting with the response to the Flint Water Crisis and provide perspective on the role of academics in addressing our failing water infrastructure, particularly for vulnerable and disadvantaged communities.
