Hi, I am Sevda, second year Ph.D. student in Architecture+Design Research Program @ VT. Currently, I am serving as a member of Planning Committee of Council of Educators 2018 Conference. Also, working as a communication person of the Landscape Architecture program.
Prior to starting the program, I gained several work experiences as a Landscape Architect and Landscape Designer in Turkey and also in the USA.
I received my BLA and MLA degrees from Turkey. My research interest was the technical aspects of green roofs in the undergraduate years. Later, that interest expanded to include not only green infrastructure and green roofs, but also the overall concepts of sustainability and urbanism, their interaction with landscape architecture, and the environmental benefits associated with such schools of thought in the MLA. I also conducted some volunteer works regarding permaculture during my master’s.
