Archana Sharma, an assistant professor with the emerging Graduate Landscape Architecture Program in the College of Architecture and Design, published a paper entitled “Interdisciplinary industrial ecology education: recommendations for an inclusive pedagogical model” in the March 2009 issue of Asia Pacific Journal of Education. Sharma’s largely unprecedented research seeks linkages between the fields of industrial ecology and landscape architecture. The paper advances the idea of industrial ecology as an integrated field of knowledge and introduces the concept of industrial ecology to the discipline of landscape architecture. Sharma received her Ph.D. from the University of Singapore in 2007 and taught at the University of Australia before joining the faculty at UT in the fall of 2008.
