Meet Our Researchers

Researchers at EUC apply interdisciplinary perspectives to study the processes that drive environmental change and the dynamics of urbanizing societies. Through our research we seek to address the challenges of environmental management, urban planning, and mobilizing for social justice and sustainability. Together, we are a community of urban, environmental and geographical researchers addressing some of the planet’s most pressing problems and challenges.
