Welcome Anne Stephenson, Sustainability Fellow

Anne StephensonThe Sustainability Office is thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Anne Stephenson to the team.  Dr. Stephenson joins us as the RMI Sustainability Fellow with a specific focus on emissions mitigation strategies in campus buildings.  She’ll be working half-time throughout the upcoming year to model potential energy and cost savings on campus and to conduct cost-benefit analyses of carbon reduction initiatives like appliance upgrades, weatherization projects, and fuel switching.  She will create a “bundled” proposal to seek funding for these projects campus-wide, while involving students in assessment and project pilots.

Annie holds a PhD from the University of Chicago where she focused at times on energy efficiency in historic buildings and served as a Sustainability Project Coordinator in 2007.  She’s a USGBC LEED Accredited Professional, a Building Performance Institute Building Analyst, and a Home Energy Rating System Rater. Most recently, she’s been the Campus Outreach Coordinator at Clean Air-Cool Planet in Portsmouth, NH, where she consults on climate action plans and carbon reduction projects with colleges across the country.  She also manages CA-CP’s Climate Fellowship Program.

You can reach Annie in the Sustainability Office in Constable Hall on Wednesdays and Thursdays (when she’s not in a boiler room somewhere).  Welcome to Unity, Annie!
