I am student in Environmental Engineering at Iowa State University, who stumbled into an interest in urban design in late 2017. Previously, I have been captain of FIRST Robotics Competition Team ASAP and a co-host of the Prius Patrol podcast. In 2017, as a part of the honors program at ISU I was paired with Dr. James Alleman, who suggested I look into Smart Cities, which led me to EPCOT, and eventually down a rabbit hole of Urban Utopias. As well as Dr. Alleman, I’d like to thank my father, Thomas O’Donnell, professional journalist and very helpful editor. You can find his work on Iowa science here.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please drop me a line!
