Biography

Caitlin Eger is a doctoral student in Civil and Environmental Engineering, studying with Drs. Charley Driscoll and Dave Chandler. In her research, she examines how adjustments to green infrastructure design affect stormwater runoff quantity and quality. She previously attended Juniata College and the Ohio State University where she studied Environmental Chemistry and Ecological Engineering. Caitlin is interested in urban ecological design, retrofitting of existing infrastructure networks, and urban chemical cycles. Theoretical topics of interest include ecological complexity, resilience networks and decentralized systems engineering. Tweet Caitlin to interact with her on Twitter at @Ecologentsia
