Fatima Lynch-Smith came to GreenerU as an intern during the summer of 2023 as an engineering student at the University of Rhode Island, where she supported doctoral-level research on the future of electric vehicles. In her spare time, she has been working on converting a combustible-engine vehicle to battery-operated.
At GreenerU, Fatima has supported field investigations of existing building systems, including energy audits, especially for lighting, electric vehicle charging, solar, and HVAC work; assisted project developers in designing solutions and developing cost estimates; and assisted in project delivery through work with project and construction managers, including updating project schedules, documenting as-built conditions, addressing field engineering challenges, and learning to use a variety of project management software. She has also developed a custom tool for identifying solar feasibility in large-scale applications. To date, her clients have included Harvard Medical School, Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Fatima is a guitar-playing Rhody whose family hails from Costa Rica.
