Rishee Jain

Assistant Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering

Professor Jain's research focuses on the development of data-driven and socio-technical solutions to sustainability problems facing the urban built environment. His work lies at the intersection of civil engineering, data analytics and social science.  Recently, his research has focused on understanding the socio-spatial dynamics of commercial building energy usage, conducting data-driven benchmarking and sustainability planning of urban buildings and characterizing the coupled dynamics of urban systems using data science and micro-experimentation.  Rishee earned his BS in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and his MS/PhD from Columbia University as part of a joint a IGERT program between civil engineering and urban planning.
