Assistant Professor Anthony McInnis Leaves to Search for New Opportunities
- By Shari Halik
Anthony McInnis (PhD-NR '11), assistant professor in ecological design, has left his position at UVM and the Rubenstein School in search of other opportunities. He came to UVM as a doctoral student to work with Professor Emeritus John Todd in the emerging field of ecological design. Anthony received a prestigious UVM George Washington Henderson Fellowship to study ecological technologies to treat mine waste for Omya, a marble quarry near Rutland, Vermont.
He then continued his research as a postdoctoral associate in the School and joined the RSENR faculty for the 2012-2013 academic year. Anthony played a key role, along with research specialist Matt Beam (NR '07, MS-NR '11), in getting the Aiken Center EcomachineTM and its associated laboratory up and running.
Anthony returned to his home country of Canada and is currently pursuing job opportunities in international sustainability.
