MUSA Brown Bag Lunch: Daniel Aldana Cohen

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Meyerson Hall, G12

Join Penn IUR for the last MUSA brown bag lunch of the semester, featuring Penn IUR Faculty Fellow Daniel Aldana Cohen, Assistant Professor of Sociology. His work addresses carbon emissions that cause climate change, which are typically, discussed in abstract terms with no clear relationship to the social and spatial inequalities that dominate urban life. But cutting-edge, spatially sophisticated statistical methods are for the first time allowing us to map responsibility for emissions in new ways. He will address important questions such as, how do social and spatial inequalities drive carbon emissions? How can we tell that story with maps? What are the limits of the visualization strategies used so far and how can we overcome them?
