Hannah Lyons-Galante currently serves at the Climate Change Resiliency Specialist for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. Her work focuses on conducting vulnerability assessments, providing guidance to engineers, and developing policies & procedures to get climate change adaptation efforts adopted throughout the organization. Prior to joining the MBTA, Hannah earned her Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design in May 2019. Her graduate work focused primarily on green infrastructure, including the design of a large scale development along Boston harbor that could withstand sea level rise. While interning at two different landscape architecture firms, one in Boston and one in NYC, Hannah gained exposure to a wide variety of projects that focused on stormwater management, roof gardens, flood protection, and the design of urban spaces to withstand heat. Prior to earning her masters, Hannah conducted an open space mapping project with the environmental non-profit Mass Audubon, taught high school science, and published original research on tropical dry forests. With an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Public Policy from Harvard College (BA 2012), Hannah aspires to bridge the worlds of ecology and design through planning, engineering projects, and policy.
