Kyle is a Ph.D. student at the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability. He holds a B.A. in English Literature from the State University of New York College at Geneseo (2015) and an M.S. in Sustainable Systems from the Rochester Institute of Technology (2016). Kyle’s research focuses on enabling leaders in the manufacturing industry to consider sustainability criteria as core components of upstream business decision systems. Kyle plans to use geographic information systems (GIS) in his own research to develop contextually-adaptable frameworks for sustainable business decision making that are informed by geospatially specific environmental impact data. Ultimately, Kyle’s goal is to work in public policy, developing business and regulatory guidelines that support a more socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable future. In his spare time, Kyle is a traveller, tennis fan, cyclist, and cook.
