2. Hadil J.S. Ayoub (Communication Assistant)

Hadil is responsible for assisting in communication for HEART, and in other areas of REVOLVE’s work. She holds a M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences and Policy (2017) from the Central European University in Budapest, and a B.A. in Environmental Science (2016) from Barnard College of Columbia University in New York. She has experience doing research on the impact of hydraulic fracturing on groundwater quality in New York and Pennsylvania; the relation between urban green spaces and environmental justice; the Water-Food-Energy-Nexus; and on sustainable energy transitions.

HEART is a project that will showcase the power that green and energy efficient technologies can have in transforming buildings and advancing energy efficiency. It will also show that while buildings might not have been initially constructed as such, they can be made into smart buildings. This is a great opportunity for me to see the integration of energy technology and building design in action, while assisting in coordinating communications for HEART.
