Research Fellows + Interns
ALI maintains a fluid base of collaborators from all over the world, and is welcomes fellows and interns. Though currently unable to offer funding to visiting Research Fellows, we are able to offer a collaborative work environment, extensive professional network, and in-kind support resources for drylands design research and dialog. Qualified collaborators who bring their own funding are encouraged to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Carolina González Vives, an architect and a PhD Candidate at the School of Architecture of Madrid (ETSAM), is a design professor at the School of Architecture, University of Alcalá and a regular contributor to digital media on urban planning, sustainability and architecture. As a Spring 2012 visiting fellow at ALI, Carolina explored her interests in urban water systems and architectural monumentality. In "Visualizing Urban Hydrology: The Design of a Wet Surface," she documents urban projects whose historic and technological flows reveal a hydrologic palimpsest.
Dr. Gini Lee and Brooke Madill of Australia were awarded a Professional Research Grant for their joint project, "Re-Investing the Line: Small Infrastructures, Micro-Communities, and Communication Ecologies for the American West." The grant was used to do fieldwork from Texas to California; to charette in Los Angeles; and to present the work at ALI's Drylands Design Conference. Gini is a landscape architect and interior designer, and the Elisabeth Murdoch Chair of Landscape Architecture at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Brooke is her design collaborator, and is undertaking her own PhD, “investigating the links between tourism, infrastructure, critical landscape design practice and arid landscapes.”
