Stephanie Carlisle is an architect and ecologist whose work focuses on the interaction between the constructed and natural environment, including life cycle assessment, urban ecology, environmental justice, and climate policy. Combining a background in environmental science and architectural design, Stephanie serves as a bridge between research and practice, bringing data-driven analysis to complex design problems. At the Carbon Leadership Forum, she works to develop open-access embodied carbon and LCA data, tools, and methods to support the building sector in radically decarbonizing construction.
Before coming to the CLF, Stephanie worked for nine years as a Principal and Environmental Researcher at KieranTimberlake, where she helped lead the office’s research on embodied carbon and environmental impacts. She led the materials database development for Tally®, a custom LCA application that allows architects to calculate the environmental impacts of their building material choices.
