Professor of Landscape Architecture
Wasserman joined the WVU Davis College in 2016 as the director of the School of Design and Community Development. Prior to that she served as the director for the Master of Landscape Architecture program and interim director for the Master of Environmental Planning and Design program at the University of Georgia College of Environment and Design.
One of her primary focus points is connecting the school’s disciplines to develop collaborative research and outreach projects not only within the school but university-wide.
Wasserman is an elected member of the Board of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture. She also chairs accreditation evaluation teams for the American Society of Landscape Architects. Her published scholarship includes the design of urban environments for active use and health, California modernism in landscape architecture, and place-making for cultural meaning.
Wasserman, a three-time graduate of Cornell University, holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and professional master’s degrees in landscape architecture (MLA) and regional planning (MRP).
