Combining a background in environmental science and architectural design, Stephanie Carlisle serves as a bridge between research and practice, bringing data-driven analysis and topical research to complex design problems.
As a researcher at KieranTimberlake, Stephanie investigates topics related to the interaction between the constructed and natural environment, including green infrastructure, urban ecology, high-performance landscape design, Life Cycle Assessment, material health and toxicity, and environmental modeling and mapping. She led the materials database development for Tally®, a custom LCA application for Revit that allows architects to calculate the environmental impacts of their building material choices during design. Her previous work at KieranTimberlake has involved using industrial symbiosis to integrate resource use at the building, landscape, and urban scale for projects such as the new US Embassy in London, the Consortium for Building Energy Innovation, and the Sculpture Building and Art Gallery at Yale University.
Stephanie's research on green roofs and landscape performance has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Cities and the Environment (CATE) and was the recipient of the AIA 2013 R&D Award. She is a contributing author to Green Roof Ecosystems, published by Springer in 2015.
Stephanie is a lecturer of Urban Ecology at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design and is the co-editor-in-chief of Scenario Journal, an online publication devoted to showcasing and facilitating the emerging interdisciplinary conversations between landscape architecture, urban design, engineering, and ecology. She has spoken and served on juries at Cornell University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Southern California, and Wesleyan University.
