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 of environmental design, and a background in applied physics, James hopes to explore the intersection of urban development and conservation of local ecologies through research areas such as water resource management, environmental sensing technology, and the sustainable sourcing of construction materials.
