Background

Mercedes is a PhD student in the Department of Bioresource Engineering and the McGill School of Environment. She is working on biomimetics, ecological engineering and regenerative architecture to optimize resources-use in buildings. She is assessing ecosystem patterns and developing conceptual and quantitative architectural models using ecological engineering tools. Her research will provide the scientific basis for biomimetic and regenerative architecture design.

Talk to Mercedes about: biomimetic design, teaching and learning, and road trips.
