PhD student uses diverse background of disciplines to solve complex sustainability issues

Ashley Richards from Arizona State University’s College of Global Futures recently interviewed me about my journey and inspiration to pursue my PhD in Sustainability at ASU’s School of Sustainability as part of their Fall 2020 Notable Graduates series. Check out the story at the link below.

“Sustainability forces you to look at problems not just as an ecologist, engineer or social scientist, but to utilize all these different perspectives and knowledge and link them together. We need people that can look across multiple fields to solve problems.” – Robert Hobbins

Social value of climate adaptation projects

Clark Miller, Sara Meerow, Sarah Dobie and I put together a database of unique climate adaptation projects that add social value to the community while also helping the community to adapt to extreme floods, heat waves, and droughts. The database of projects includes examples from cities across North America and Latin American Cities. This effort was supported by the Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Network and completed during the summer of 2017. Read more about this effort and access the database below.
