About Julia's Work

Julia Rogers is a Senior Sustainability Designer with Vanderweil Engineers. She previously worked for DTZ, a global facilities management corporation, as the program manager for the Energy and Sustainability team. She was also the Sustainability Coordinator for Massachusetts Institute of Technology since graduating from Bowdoin in 2008 with a B.A. in Environmental Science, History and a minor in Biology. She is a founding board member of the US Green Building Council of Massachusetts. At MIT she was a member of the Energy team in the Department of Facilities Engineering, developing a cross-campus energy reduction program for the existing building infrastructure. In addition, she leads the LEED certification efforts on new buildings and retrofits for the campus. Last year, she decided to contextualize her work with a degree in Planning. She earned her Master's degree at Tufts' Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning department. Her thesis work analyzed the link between on-going commissioning efforts in buildings and overall energy reductions. The outcome shed light on effective energy management practices replicable for towns and campuses across the country. When she isn't working or writing papers, you can find her teaching spinning and competing in triathlons.
