Kasey Faust

Assistant Professor
The University of Texas at Austin

Dr. Kasey M. Faust is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research on sociotechnical projects (primarily water sector infrastructure) aims to improve access to basic necessities for underserved communities. The provision of water is threatened by aging and decaying water infrastructure systems, insufficient access, lack of funding for capital projects, workforce constraints, and exposure to frequent and severe hazards. To address these urgent challenges, she studies water infrastructure systems through a sociotechnical systems lens to improve the delivery of safe and reliable water services. Her work advances our understanding of resiliency and proposes novel physical, managerial, and operational solutions. Questions posed are impact-driven to support decision-making around critical and emerging challenges for sustainable projects, improved access, and equitable services.
