This FIG will explore balancing the performance and environmental impact of apparel to design more sustainable sportswear.

College Connections Faculty: Julie Haack

Dr. Julie Haack is the assistant department head and a senior instructor for the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oregon.  She is currently leading an effort to establish the UO Tyler Invention Greenhouse as an open and collaborative "think tank” environment where students, faculty and local entrepreneurs from the fields of chemistry, design and business collaborate on projects that accelerate the movement of ideas from invention to the marketplace in a way that drives innovation. As an educator, she is integrating green chemistry and design thinking into chemistry curricula to help students connect design and innovation to the science of sustainability.
