Biography

Professor Kennedy studies systems problems on the integrated built, natural and social environment to understand how we can make better decisions on built systems to promote sustainable development. Her current research focuses on the development and application of systems and sustainability planning and performance evaluation methods.  Kennedy has published extensively and developed undergraduate and graduate courses in this interdisciplinary area.  She serves as instructor for the undergraduate required course: Civil Engineering Systems, and two graduate electives Infrastructure Systems (Asset Management) and Infrastructure, Megacities and Sustainable Development, all of which address the proper stewardship of infrastructure for sustainable development.  Professor Kennedy is co-author of the college textbook Fundamentals of Systems Engineering with Economics, Probability and Statistics, 2nd Ed. (2012, J. Ross Publishing).  She is the founding chair of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Committee on Sustainability and the Environment (CSE) -- of the Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI); a member of the National Research Council’s Board on Infrastructure and the Constructed Environment (BICE); and a member of the Transportation and Sustainability Committee of the Transportation Research Board (National Academies).  Kennedy serves on the Advisory Board of the Integrated Network on Social Sustainability (INSS), and is a member of the Research Coordination Network on Sustainable Cities.  She also serves on the editorial boards of the International Journal of Sustainable Transportation, and Sustainability (The Journal of Record); and as Associate Editor for the ASCE Journal of Transportation Engineering.  Professor Kennedy is the founding director of the Network for Sustainable Solutions, a knowledge network with footprints in the U.S., Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe focused on developing research and education capacity to create the infrastructure for sustainable development.  She enjoys spending time with family, playing the piano and painting.
