Corey Murphy teaches Understanding Sustainability within the Graduate Architecture program in the Golisano Institute for Sustainability. He graduated from the City College of New York with a MS in their department of Sustainability within the Urban Environment, and received the Jiji Latif Award for Sustainability. Having spent much of his youth between the New York City area and the Adirondack Mountain region of New York, he became increasingly interested in the integration of ecological design for the purpose of improved urban design and ecosystem benefits. His current research involves the development and implementation of Agroecological Engineering and Permacultural models as a means of mitigating climate change, and remediating degraded ecosystems. His interests also include high performance building design and Passive House design across all scales. His students describe his pedagogical approach as interactive and passionate.
