She holds a BS in Environmental Engineering from the University at Buffalo where she graduated in 2016. Currently Alexandra is studying critical materials and methods of reducing their supply risks, with a recent focus on those materials used in clean energy technologies. She plans to integrate GIS into her research, particularly for the spatial questions associated with how to best manage clean energy technologies at their end-of-life. Her hobbies include traveling and numerous outdoor activities including hiking, skiing, sailing, and kayaking to name a few. In the future she hopes to work in industry and make a difference in the way materials are used and discarded.
