Keith VanDerSys

Senior Lecturer in Landscape Architecture

In addition to being an EMLab co-director, Keith VanDerSys is a founding partner of PEG office of landscape + architecture and a Senior Lecturer in Landscape Architecture. His research and teaching explore the applicability of new media and fabrication technologies to site applications. Recent research includes combining the computational capacities of geospatial analysis (ArcGIS Pro), computational fluid dynamics (Aquaveo SRH-2D/ CMS Flow), and parametric software (Rhino/ Grasshopper) to investigate new strategies of defining, analyzing, and monitoring landscapes.


Keith leads the EMLab working group with Sean Burkholder and Karen M’Closkey.
