Eleanor Stokes is interested in the relationship between the spatial form and structure of the built environment and urban resource use, and the impact of urbanization on greenhouse gas emissions. Before joining the Urbanization and Global Change Group, she received a MS in mechanical engineering at MIT, focusing on daylighting and building technology, and a BA from Dartmouth College in math and studio art. She has six years of professional experience in the building technology field, specializing in high performance building design, daylight analysis, renewable energy feasibility studies, and energy efficient mechanical and lighting design. She is a NASA Jenkins doctoral fellow, and spends her summers in Washington DC at Goddard Space Flight Center working with the Terrestrial Information Systems Laboratory using the new Suomi-NPP VIIRS Day/Night Visible Band to analyze urbanization dynamics.
