Managing Director, Western Water Assessment – CIRES/Univ of CO Boulder
Competitions: NIHHIS Center for Community Climate & Health Observations, Monitoring & Evaluation; NIHHIS Center for Climate and Health Assessments, Policy, and Practice
Western Water Assessment is a university-based applied research program that addresses societal vulnerabilities to climate variability and climate change, particularly those related to water resources. We work with communities, NGOs, water managers, and other resource managers in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming and are a NOAA CAP/RISA team. Our expertise includes social and physical scientists. We are open to conversations with potential partners and happy to serve in a number of roles as collaborators.
Western Water Assessment (WWA)
Climate Action Strategist, Climateflux GmbH
Competition: NIHHIS Center for Community Climate & Health Observations, Monitoring & Evaluation
Climateflux’s expertise includes urban climate sensing and modeling with applications in research and design. The sensing techniques include high resolution spatiotemporal mapping of environmental parameters and urban health measures collecting data from urban environments and human thermal and physiological exchanges with the outdoor environment. We provide specialized scientific and technical consultancy services to public administrations, international organizations, urban design and architecture firms in the field of environmental sensing and simulations to support design strategies and policy making.
We have have submitted a Letter of Intent to establish a Center for Community Climate & Health Observations, Monitoring & Evaluation. Our LoI outlines how we would leverage our Climatewalks method, a data-driven and human-centered approach to community-based observation, to engage citizens in collecting and analyzing high resolution microclimate data in order to assess heat risk at a local scale, and co-design actionable, site-specific interventions to improve outdoor comfort and heat resilience in their neighborhood. Our Germany-based team is open to partnering with US-based applicants to form a joint proposal for the October 16, 2023 submission.
Director, UW Center for Health and the Global Environment (CHanGE)
Competitions: NIHHIS Center for Community Climate & Health Observations, Monitoring & Evaluation, Sub-competition; NIHHIS Center for Climate and Health Assessments, Policy, and Practice
CHanGE works with local, regional, and national stakeholders to center health in climate action and climate health protection. We work with partners to co-develop and implement climate and health risk assessment and adaptation activities. We have expertise in risk and health impact assessment, adaptation planning, decision support, policy analysis, policy development, implementation and implementation science, and program evaluation. We are experienced with qualitative and quantitative climate and health research and comfortable with climate, weather, and health data as well as stakeholder-driven research and programming.
UW Center For Health And The Global Environment
Research Scientist, Climate Impacts Group, University of Washington
Competition: NIHHIS Center for Climate and Health Assessments, Policy, and Practice
I am a policy scientist and researcher who has co-authored a peer-reviewed article on the health, socioeconomic, and environmental determinants of individual and community heat health risks for Washington state, and assessed policy interventions designed to address underlying factors that lead to high vulnerability. I can assist with investigative research into the place-based determinants of risk or collaborate in the coordination of governmental and non-governmental partners essential to instituting effective policy.
Principal Researcher and Director of Wastewater Research, Mathematica
Competition: NIHHIS Center for Community Climate & Health Observations, Monitoring & Evaluation and NIHHIS Center for Climate and Health Assessments, Policy, and Practice
Mathematica is a globally recognized leader and trusted partner in conducting rigorous high-quality research. With 1,800 employees located across the country, we have deep expertise in data management and synthesis, rigorous statistical modeling and projections, quasi-experimental policy and program evaluations, cost-benefit analyses, mixed-methods research that includes qualitative and survey research, technical assistance, and policy and planning support that includes support with communication and dissemination. For this opportunity, we bring expertise to support work in both centers. For example, our analytical and technical assistance capabilities can be leveraged in combination to help identify communities hardest hit by extreme heat, co-design community science projects, conduct surveys, tailor heat action plans, assess community resilience, develop model simulations, and / or synthesize and visualize multiple complex data sources to explore relationships around heat and health. We are open to conversations with potential partners and happy to serve in a number of roles as collaborators.
