Kira is a Master of Engineering student in the Systems Engineering department: she wants to apply systems thinking to achieve sustainable outcomes. Even though she is interested in a variety of industries and work areas, she is hoping to start her career within the supply chain management and life cycle analysis space. Kira strongly believes in bringing strategy and sustainability together by going back to the drawing board and rethinking the way things are done. Her Masters project focuses on redesigning the fitness industry, in partnership with Cybex, a commercial fitness equipment company. She was president of Energy Corps, a student-run organization that promotes energy efficiency upgrades on campus. She is also actively involved in Cornell's entrepreneurial scene, working with a start-up that hopes to provide funding for other start-ups.
