Danielle Bilot is a hybrid design professional, working in both landscape architecture and planning fields. She has advanced degrees from both the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Oregon. Danielle's research focuses on designing for social and environmental equity using the diversity of native bees to support diversity among urban ecosystems and local agriculture. 

Her projects and research have been recognized nationally and internationally through media and publications such as Landscape Architecture Magazine and has received funding through large grants and private partnerships. Danielle has spoken at many professional conferences including TED/TEDx, AIA, ASLA, and AICP. 

After working on the White House Pollinator Action Plan, she began teaching at the University of Colorado in Environmental Design, adapting her research to a design-build curriculum that tests novel ecology theories in parking lots, the most ubiquitous land use in the United States. She also teaches a range of studio and lecture classes that focus on hands-on learning experiences and contemporary policy adaptations for a resilient urban future. In her extracurricular activities, Danielle is the primary advisor of the CU Bee Club, which has grown to be one of the largest student organizations on campus in less than a year.
