People Spotlight: Lindsey Conlan ’18 

Lindsey Conlan ’18 is a senior majoring in civil and environmental engineering who spent her summer researching ways to recycle the gravel used in concrete. The Peter B. Lewis Fund for Student Innovation in Energy and the Environment and the Dede T. Bartlett P03 Fund for Student Research in Energy and the Environment, which are administered by the Andlinger Center, funded her summer internship project along with five other students’ projects.

Effects of climate change demand holistic adaptation response

Princeton hosted a day-long workshop on climate adaptation that drew 37 academics, researchers, architects, economists, and industry consultants to the Andlinger Center on October 27.

At the conference, presenters shared the latest research on climate change’s global impact, such as tropical cyclones, heat waves in cities, and melting polar ice caps. Speakers also presented ideas on adapting infrastructure for present and future dangers for coastal regions to cities and other communities, and brainstormed how Princeton can amplify its existing resources on campus to better serve stakeholders and students.
