The DDes program is delighted to announce that, on Monday, April 10, Juhann Waller (DDes Cohort 1) unconditionally passed his doctoral dissertation defense. Juhann is the very first student-practitioner to reach this important milestone in the five-year-old DDES program at NC State.
Juhann's doctoral dissertation is entitled: Resilient Infrastructure: An Integrated Design Approach for the Equitable Distribution of Stormwater Capital Improvements Projects for Pluvial Flood Mitigation. It models a type of applied design research that can be effected in real time, for real change.
