EDGES alum Dr. Sameer Shah is now an assistant professor at the University of Washington’s School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. Congratulations, Sameer! His research at the university aims to understand the socio-economic and political processes by which climate change unevenly impacts people, and their water, food, and energy resources. He is especially interested in analyzing the equity, justice, and sustainability outcomes of climate adaptation and disaster response at multiple scales. Ultimately, Dr. Shah seeks to both inform adaptation planning that reduces the disproportionately larger climate risks experienced by marginalized groups, and to shape long-term policy strategies that transform the underlying systems responsible for exacerbating climate impacts.
