Principal and Environmental Researcher
Stephanie Carlisle investigates the interaction between the natural and constructed environment, including embodied carbon, life cycle assessment (LCA), urban ecology, material toxicity, and equity. Combining a background in environmental science and architectural design, Stephanie serves as a bridge between research and practice, bringing data-driven analysis and topical research to complex design problems. Stephanie is a core member of the development team for Tally®, a whole building LCA tool that empowers designers to run full-building life cycle assessments during design.
Stephanie is also a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design, where she teaches classes on embodied carbon, climate change, and ecology. She serves as the chair of the Education and Research Focus Group of the Embodied Carbon Network. She is on the board of the Carbon Leadership Forum, two organizations dedicated to raising carbon literacy and developing open-source research, strategies, and tools for the AEC community.
