A brief history


I’m Nadine (“Na-di-neh”) and as a Joint-PhD Candidate in Ecological Engineering at University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin, I explore and implement ways to improve urban ecosystems with emerging ‘smart city’ technologies. Much of my research, ranging from circular economics to urban engineering, is viewed through an ecological lens.

I’ve given dozens of talks and keynotes across Europe, Asia, and North America, where I explore my views on urban metabolism, circular economics, and geospatial analytics.

I hold degrees in ecology and evolutionary biology (BSc. Honours) from the University of Toronto, with a minor from the National University of Singapore, and in earth sciences (MSc. cum laude) from the University of Amsterdam, with a thesis on agroecology input-output models at Wageningen University and the University of Hawassa (Ethiopia).
