Ir. S. (Sadie) McEvoy
Sadie is a PhD researcher at the Policy Analysis section of TU Delft’s Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. She also works closely with the Department of Water Management, at the Faculty of Civil Engineering.
Following undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering, in the US, Sadie worked as a consultant on international water resources management projects. Through this experience, Sadie developed an interest in the role of decision making in water management. She pursued this interest in graduate studies at the Department of Water Management, at TU Delft’s Faculty of Civil Engineering, where she graduated with a thesis on economic valuation for real-time control in water systems.
In her doctoral research, Sadie is studying the effect of participatory planning support tools on decision making in urban planning. Her focus is on the use of these tools in cities that are planning for resilience to climate change. In this project, Sadie is able to pursue her interests in decision making under uncertainty and the use of information in decision making.
