In this video Vanderbilt University School of Engineering graduate student Debra Perrone describes her environmental engineering and environmental science research, and her participation in the 2012 Young Scientist Summer Program in Laxenburg, Austria. Her research is focused on developing a comprehensive understanding of the complex risks and tradeoffs in food, water and energy management. Her work also involves studying the impacts of climate change on water, energy and food.
Debra received her undergraduate degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Lafayette College in 2008. An active member of Lafyatte's Engineers Without Borders chapter, she worked on water projects in rural Honduras. After graduation she began the PhD. Program in Environmental Engineering at Vanderbilt University and has been a fellow of Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment (VIEE) for the past 3 years. In 2011, she was awarded an Environmental Protection Agency STAR fellowship for her research on the water-energy-food nexus. Debra is currently working on exploring spatio-temporal dimensions of U.S. water, energy and food resources.

The Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and the Environment (VIEE) engages in research and education that directly link the social and behavioral sciences, physical sciences, engineering, law and policy, and that bear on energy and environmental decision making by individuals and by public and private institutions. Specifically, VIEE research elucidates the relationships among individual, institutional, and societal choices for energy production and use, and the impacts and benefits of these choices on the environment and health through links with climate, water quality, economics, social psychology, and natural resources. www.vanderbilt.edu/viee
A key aim of VIEE is to create a strong multi-disciplinary undergraduate and graduate research and education program, which will evolve into a center of national and international leadership in this field.
