James Brice

James is currently an M.Arch degree candidate with the class of 2024. Before coming to MIT, he worked as a zookeeper and aquarist with the Staten Island Zoological Society, responsible for not only the care and welfare of species from every major taxonomic group, but also the design of various terrestrial and aquatic enclosures. 

Pulling from this professional knowledge, and a background in applied physics, James hopes to explore the intersection of human development and ecological conservation through research areas such as watershed architecture, mutualistic community dynamics, and environmental fluid mechanics.
