Research Fellow, EskewDumezRipple
Kelsey Wotila is a Research Fellow at EskewDumezRipple studying reduced carbon of construction and building operations. Her research makes ZEROCODE and Architecture 2030 targets for carbon accessible. Kelsey graduated from the University of Colorado Denver with a Master of Architecture, and earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado Boulder. After practicing architecture and design, she moved toward understanding impacts of the building industry and built environment. An emerging professional in carbon accounting, Kelsey has the skillset to convey complexity at an introductory level.
Her work with EskewDumezRipple results in simple guidelines for architects to understand impacts of their design decisions. Kelsey has been recognized by Project StaSIO for her work graphically communicating impact on embodied carbon of structural components as part of a building system.
She has partnered with MEP consultants to accurately quantify the impact of various systems compared to their cost and energy efficiency. Through her research, she seeks simple answers to complex questions, allowing for immediate, impactful decisions to be made.
