About the Keynote Session:

This event will feature co-authors and researchers Dr. Jeremy Hoffman and Dr. Vivek Shandas who, along with Nicholas Pendleton, recently won acclaim for their study, “The Effects of Historical Housing Policies on Resident Exposure to Intra-Urban Heat: A Study of 108 US Urban Areas.” Their study, published in the January 2020 special issue of Climate, “Survivability under Overheating – The Impact of Regional and Global Climate Change on Vulnerable and Low Income Populations,” was featured in the New York Times in August 2020 as part of its Climate and Environment Series and identifies growing evidence that policy, racism, and climate change contribute directly quality of life disparities that disproportionately impact low-income communities of color.
