The theme for this panel is Data, Climate Change, and Design. How can we use the rapidly increasing available data and data analytics to create better urban design and policies to address climate change? Six panelists will share their experience and exchange views on how new data and data tools can advance the action of cities to mitigate and adapt to climate change across the Cascadia Corridor. The event is organized by CBE in collaboration with Urban@UW.
Featured panelists will include:
Stephanie Chang, Professor and Canada Research Chair, University of British Columbia
Jenny Liu, Assistant Director of NERC (NW Economic Research Center) and Assistant Professor at Portland State
Ken Yocom, Associate Professor, UW Department of Landscape Architecture
Joe Casola, PhD, Deputy Director, UW Climate Impacts Group
David Beck, Senior Data Science Fellow & Director of Research, E-science and Research Professor UW Chemical Engineering
Ali Modarres, Director & Professor, Urban Studies, UW Tacoma
The panel will be be moderated by Jan Whittington, Associate Professor, UW Department of Urban Design and Planning.
