Profile of Mr Aaron Young University of California, Berkeley

Aaron Young

My work and research in City and Regional Planning addresses the confluence of urbanization and climate change to explore the opportunities and obstacles to socio-spatial equity in climate adaptation and resilience.

General research interests

This ongoing inquiry builds upon the theory and praxis of city and regional planning while also maintaining dialogue with international development, climate and environmental science, and environmental movements within the global and local spheres.

Currently, I am conducting research in Southeast Asia and the coastal north-western United States in an effort to translate place-based inquiries into a platform for Pacific-to-Pacific connections regarding equitable urban sustainability.
