Lynn Abdouni joined the Clemson landscape architecture faculty in Fall 2021. She holds a BFA in graphic design from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon (2009), a master’s in landscape design and Development from Chatham University (2013), and a Ph.D. in Environmental Design and Planning from the University of Georgia’s College of Environment and Design (2022), where she taught design and graphic representation courses on the graduate and undergraduate levels, earning the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2021. She worked as a publication designer for Information International, a research firm based in Beirut, and as a community gardens coordinator at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. Lynn’s research focuses on mapping the morphology of the vernacular and informal built environment. She pays specific attention to peri-urban and rural towns with infrastructural challenges (energy and transportation) in the Middle East and the U.S. Southeast. Her methods of choice largely fall under satellite imagery analysis and geographic information systems (GIS).
