Landscape ecologist Andrew Sell brings other experts together to discuss
As a senior project landscape architect and ecologist at Sasaki, Andy collaborates with multidisciplinary teams in translating academic research into design strategies for ecological resilience. His passion for increasing environmental complexity in urban and suburban settings is evident in his range of domestic and international project experience. Andy is a seasoned plantsman and ecological designer with professional experience in horticulture, public garden administration, and landscape restoration. As a former park ranger, he’s committed to connecting people to the environment through experiential design and education. From conceptual master plans for habitat connectivity to built shoreline restorations designed to enhance interspecies food webs, Andy leverages sustainable thinking to inform design, construction, and maintenance strategies for Sasaki’s landscape and planning practices.
Outside of project work, Andy is an active member of Sasaki’s culture – leading efforts to improve office environmental sustainability and conducting research in trial pollinator gardens and for a new climate resiliency toolkit for parks. In his free time, you’ll often find Andy in his home garden and hiking across all of New England.
