2020- 2021 Academic Year Projects


California Wildfire Risk Analysis 

The Risk and Resilience team at the Roberts Environmental Center is analyzing the disparities that residents of unincorporated territories face in the wake of California wildfires. These communities, also known as Census Designated Places (CDPs), are typically low-income, have older populations, and are largely uninsured. Our team is building a mapping tool that displays wildfire-related policies across California as well as wildfire-driven migration risk potential. Additionally, an extensive outreach campaign will not only support this research, but amplify the voices of those who feel forgotten.
