Liz is a researcher and licensed architect whose work aims to reduce mechanical cooling loads in hot-humid climates by enhancing building façade systems. She joined Eskew+Dumez+Ripple as the 2017 research fellow after completing her Master of Science in Building Technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
After receiving her Bachelors of Architecture (BArch) and Fine Arts (BFA) from the Rhode Island School of Design, Liz practiced in Santa Fe, Seattle, Boston, Houston and Singapore before relocating to New Orleans. With a sizeable portion of the globe occupying hot-humid climate zones, Liz’s work strives to enhance architectural innovation and construction technologies in these areas. Her work explores climatically sensitive and contextually appropriate building enclosure designs that both connect the occupant to the outdoors and reduce the dependence on mechanical conditioning. Currently she is exploring energy recovery potential at building membranes, as generated by extreme temperature differentials.
Liz recently presented her research at the IBPSA Building Simulation conference and has joined the Tulane Faculty as a lecturer.
