Dr. Deidre Zoll is a postdoctoral fellow in the Integrative Biology Department at the University of Texas at Austin where she finished her Ph.D. in Community and Regional Planning. Her research investigates the connections between city-led climate adaptation planning and environmental racism in the United States. She uses mixed methods including plan evaluation, spatial statistics, and case studies to identify the ways structural racism influences exposure to climate risks and proximity to adaptation interventions, and how urban planners and community activists navigate these dynamics.
