James Vincent Brice is a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) pursuing a Master of Architecture with research co-advised in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Before coming to MIT, he worked as a zookeeper and aquarist at the Staten Island Zoo, responsible for the care of terrestrial and aquatic animal life. Pulling from this professional experience and a BS in Applied Physics (RPI ’16), he has been exploring the integration of architecture, urban ecology and environmental fluid mechanics.
