Emily educates students and develops projects with a keen focus on sustainability, passive design techniques, environmental responsibility, climate change, and equitable design.  In 2020, Emily received the Buell Center Paris Prize Award for a project that successfully complies with, interprets, and critically extends the terms and spirit of the 2015 Paris Agreement.  In 2019, Emily attended courses at the New School Parsons School of Design for a workshop in the Healthy Materials Lab that focused on sustainably sourced and environmentally responsible materials. As an advocate, Emily actively participates in sustainable practice groups, women in architecture committees, LGBTQ+ rights organizations, and local volunteer groups.
