Eva Roos works as a Landscape Designer for Saiki Design in Madison, Wisconsin. She received her Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Science in Conservation Ecology degrees from the University of Michigan. Through her experience in ecological restoration, studying fine arts in undergraduate, and a deep love of place-based literature, she arrived upon landscape architecture as a path to illuminate the stories of landscapes and their people. She is determined to help students find the endless connections between seemingly separate disciplines, and to shine a light on norms which are so apparent that they often go unseen and unquestioned.
