Cassandra Thiel

PhD, Civil Engineering 2013


I graduated from Pitt with my PhD in 2013. Afterward, I had three, one-year post docs. One was a Fulbright-Nehru award in India,the other two were back at Pitt. In 2016, I took an assistant professor position at NYU (joint appointments in SOM, Tandon engineering, and Wagner public service), and I've been building my lab in healthcare sustainability research.Dr. Melissa Bilec wasmy PhD and postdoctoral advisor/mentor. She and others at MCSI trained me in the science of sustainability (particularly LCA) while also teaching me key parts of being a successful academic.
