  • Green Infrastructure, Climate and Cities Seminar Series

    Wednesday, April 5, 2017

    Hill Conference Room Room 240, LeBow Engineering Center 31st and Market Streets Philadelphia, PA 19104

    • Everyone

    Urban Planning and Design Implications More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. This demographic shift creates a host of new opportunities, but also some new risks, especially given the challenges posed by climatic extremes. This timely seminar series focuses attention on these issues, and what decision makers, researchers, and practitioners are learning about how to address them. The focus of the CCRUN seminar series is on urban solutions to global problems associated with increasing temperature and sea level rise, precipitation variability, and greenhouse gas emissions. We are interested in the implications of such changes on the complex infrastructure of intensely developed landscapes, and on the health, well-being, and vulnerability of the people who live in them. This seminar will focus on the urban planning and design implications of climate change. Experts in the field will present their research. Following the presentations, there will be a question and answer session.

  • 2017 Engineering Alumni Lecture - Christine Fiori '92, '94, '97

    Wednesday, April 26, 2017

    4:00 PM-5:30 PM

    Mitchell Auditorium, First Floor Bossone Research Center 3140 Market Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

    • Everyone

    Christine Fiori is a Professor and Program Director of the Construction Management Program at Drexel University. Prior to joining Drexel in 2015, she was the Preston and Catharine White Fellow and Associate Director of the Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech. Christine’s research, teaching, and service work has taken her to many countries throughout the world and helped to shape her passion for the global engagement of constructors and engineers. She has led diverse teams of researchers and students on three separate expeditions to the Andes mountains of Peru to investigate the engineering practices of the ancient Inka as part of an NSF grant and partnership with the Smithsonian Institute. Domestic and international service work helped to shape her approach to both teaching and research and enabled her to develop a robust service learning program founded on the principles of community engagement, environmental stewardship, and sustainable infrastructure. She has mentored student teams to complete construction projects in Vietnam, Kenya, Belize, Honduras, Haiti and Guatemala in collaboration with Peacework and Bridges to Prosperity. Christine’s lecture will discuss her academic journey back to Drexel University using her research experiences from around the world as a roadmap. Christine has received numerous awards for her teaching, research and service. Most recently, her work on Inka Engineering practices has been collected as part of the “Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire Exhibit” at the Smithsonian’s Museum of the Native American Indian in Washington, D.C. and was featured on the Discovery Science Channel. Christine has a B.S. in Civil Engineering (‘92), M.S. in Civil Engineering (‘94), M.S. in Engineering Geology (‘97) and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (‘97) from Drexel University.
