Shoshanna Saxe is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil & Mineral Engineering. Prof. Saxe received her Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering from MIT (2009) and her PhD from the University of Cambridge in Engineering (2016) (Jesus College). She investigates the relationship between the infrastructure we build and the society we create, with a particular focus on environmental sustainability. Prof. Saxe maintains that our infrastructure systems are the skeletal structure of society; they drive how we live, work, consume and travel.
