Noorie Rajvanshi

2016 Research Fellow

Noorie Rajvanshi is a sustainability engineer with more than seven years of experience in the field of environmental impact quantification using life cycle assessment methodology. She holds expertise in sustainability assessments in the fields of energy and manufacturing for existing and emerging technologies.

Following the completion of her PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Noorie was a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Life Cycle Analysis (CLCA) at Columbia University, studying the impact of crystalline silicone photovoltaics. Her past research interests also include quantitative evaluation methods for assessment of bioethanol production using energy, exergy, consumptive water, and energy and life cycle assessment methods.

Noorie graduated from the University of Florida with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Environmental Engineering. During her time in graduate school, Noorie was able to learn and experience adaptive management of water, wetlands, and watersheds in the Okavango Delta in Africa and the Everglades in the US through an interdisciplinary NSF-IGERT fellowship program. She received her Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida, and her Bachelors of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from Maharashtra Institute of Technology.
