How to join the Lab


The Environmental Systems Lab is an interdisciplinary group of highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students from Architecture, Planning, Computer Science, Systems Engineering as well as Civil and Environmental Engineering. As part of the lab, you would work on research projects related to computational design and sustainability in the built environment. These projects are presented at leading international conferences and published in leading journals. Research outcomes such as software tools released by the lab also usually have a significant impact on education and practice and are used at leading universities and practices around the world.


Prospective Students

Highly motivated students with a strong interest in sustainability in the built environment and good foundational knowledge in Environmental Systems and Computational Desing are encouraged to reach out to the director Timur Dogan (tkdogan[at]cornell.edu).
To apply to a Master Degree: MArch, MS-AAD, MDC
To apply to the Ph.D. programs in AAP City and Regional Planning, Systems Engineering and Civil Engineering based on their background.

Atkinson Post Doc Fellowship

The Cornell Atkinson postdoctoral fellowship is a great way to connect with Cornell’s sustainability-focused community. As Post-Doc with the Environmental Systems Lab you would help lead the future of sustainability through innovative, interdisciplinary research collaborations with industry, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, government agencies, communities, and others committed to large-scale, long-term sustainability solutions.
