Hello Border Partner enthusiasts!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to this community: I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Architecture at the University of Texas in Austin and am conducting my research here with Border Partners!
I am interested in all aspects of Border Partner’s sustainable technologies programs, but I know I cannot understand the way these technologies work without understanding life of people here and the stories of these places. I have moved to Columbus to immerse myself here and I hang out with and help the Border Partner’s team during the day to learn all about life and the process of introducing technologies.
I will also begin conducting interviews this fall. I would love to hear everyone’s opinion and stories so I can share this knowledge with the academic community, others who hope to improve lives through sustainable building technologies, and those who misunderstand life at the border.
Feel free to come talk to me or ask me any questions about this process!
