She is found­ing Direc­tor of CASE (2007-present), which hosts the Grad­u­ate Pro­gram in Archi­tec­tur­al Sci­ences / Built Ecolo­gies.

She also holds mul­ti­ple inter­na­tion­al patents for build­ing sys­tems inven­tions, and cur­rent­ly directs research fund­ed by the Nation­al Sci­ence Foun­da­tion (NSF), the U.S. Depart­ment of Ener­gy (DOE), the New York State Ener­gy Research and Devel­op­ment Author­i­ty (NYSERDA), and the New York State Foun­da­tion for Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy and Inno­va­tion (NYSTAR).
