Hunter Kunzelmann

I was born in Macon, GA and started my undergraduate degree in Environmental Engineering in 2019 after matriculating to UGA in 2018 as an ecology student. I became interested in the field of resilient infrastructure when I took Urban Systems Engineering and learned about biomimicry and the ability to utilize natural designs in man-made infrastructure for aesthetic as well as environmentally friendly protective purposes. Familiarity with professors in the UGA College of Engineering as well as the possibilities provided by working with a conservation group with a staff of engineers drew me to the DU program. After graduating with my master’s degree, I hope to work in the field of resilient infrastructure designing solutions to problems presented by climate change and sea level rise with a group of like-minded individuals.
