The Committee for Environmental Responsibility recently welcomed Anna Sajina as its newest member. Sajina, who holds a doctorate in Astronomy from the University of British Columbia, is a postdoctoral research associate and visiting assistant professor of Physics at Haverford.
“I have been interested in environmental issues for quite some time, and we have adopted many environmentally-friendly practices in our home,” says Sajina. “I am particularly interested in passive heating/cooling and water recycling.”
Sajina learned a great deal about about these issues last summer during a stay with other Haverford faculty in an earthship house in New Mexico. Highly energy-efficient, earthship homes are constructed using old tires and rammed earth.
Says Sajina, “I look forward to working with the other CER members toward greater sustainability at Haverford.”
