Janice is a second-year Ph.D. student in Construction Engineering and Management focusing on the impact of the Department of Defense housing and shelter projects on communities. She is co-advised by Amy Javernick-Will and Abbie Liel. Her career as an Army Engineer working in complex post-conflict and post-disaster environments sparked her passion for civil-military engagement processes, program decisionmaking, and the effects of chosen interventions on community and military stakeholders. After completing her Ph.D., Janice aspires to continue her involvement in research and to consult on the impact of civil-military reconstruction on stability, migration decisions, and socio-economic development.
