Viviana Barquero

I am an architect interested in sustainable communities and new urbanism, majoring in Arid Lands Resource Sciences minoring in Global Change. The interdisciplinarity of both programs has led her to focus her research primarily on the use of renewable energy as a way to mitigate climate change and improve livelihood conditions in Mexican arid regions.

Glenn Schrader’s research interests have focused on a broad range of areas in fundamental and applied materials science, with particular interest in catalysis. Most recently, he has studied the impact of complex catalytic processes on environmental sustainability. He has held visiting faculty appointments at the University of Queensland and the University of Sydney in Australia, and the Norwegian Institute of Technology and the University of Trondheim in Norway. While at Iowa State University he also held the position of senior chemical engineer within the U.S.
