Shoshanna drives researchers, engineers and policy makers to consider the full life cycle environmental impacts and benefits of urban infrastructure. Her research focuses at the intersection of what we build; how we build it and the long-term impacts infrastructure has on civil society. She is the author of 9 published academic papers dealing with infrastructure and the environment, including “The Net Greenhouse Gas Impact of the Sheppard Subway Line”. The conclusions led to a collaboration with Metrolinx to better understand the embodied environmental impacts of transit infrastructure in Ontario, and a collaboration with Arup Toronto to inform sustainability driven design of underground infrastructure. She sits on the Waterfront Toronto Capital Peer Review Panel.
