Sustainability Director

Jordin Metz

I am from the Philadelphia area, received my B.S. in Chemistry from Tufts University just outside of Boston, and am here working towards my PhD in Chemistry. I really enjoy cooking, baking, eating, reading, museums, and dancing (especially salsa/bachata dancing!). As the Sustainability Director, I am working to make Rice more sustainable on many fronts. These range from green chemistry and lower-energy lab practices to low-carbon food at GSA events to collaborating with grad housing. I want to work with our community to shift the culture of graduate students at Rice to one that is more sustainably minded in all facets of our lives. Please reach out if you have questions, comments, suggestions, or just want to chat!
