Edy Jostol


Edy combines a passion for uncovering untold narratives with an excellence in using design to tell powerful stories. She brings an unusual and exciting background in landscape architecture to Galileo, providing her with a unique lens for decoding human interactions with environments, and the intricate connections within systems. She seeks to ground her work in community outreach and engagement wherever possible, ensuring that her perspective is grounded in an authentic understanding of people and place. In her research work prior to Galileo, she has applied this lens to categories ranging from healthcare to climate change; for example, while studying at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, she led a major interview project to explore the emotional, social, and practical impacts of rising water levels on individuals’ decisions about relocation. Outside of work, Edy enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest, reading, and cooking with friends.
