Leadership in Sustainability and Environmental Justice: A Semester Series of Engagement and Action

February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Scripps Sustainability

Los Angeles Native Guillermo Douglass-Jaimes focuses his research on the social and spatial determinants of health with special attention to place and neighborhood effects on health. His work, which is situated in both Los Angeles and Brazil, uses geospatial analysis, and qualitative research methods, to highlight localized health disparities often masked when narrow constructions of place are considered. His work focuses on global health equity and is driven by an interest and inquiry in how conceptions of place and identity can be products of social marginalization as well as sources for community resilience. He has collaborated with environmental health scientists, social scientists and epidemiologists as well as community-based organizations working on environmental health and environmental justice issues. He holds a Master of urban and regional planning from University of California, Los Angeles, and Ph.D. in environmental science, policy, and management from University of California, Berkeley.
