Gabrielle Wong-Parodi — Preparing frontline communities for climate disruption: Lessons from community-embedded research (November 2022)


Frontline communities are those that endure the “first and worst” of climate change. The Our Communities, Our Bay research project follows households in frontline communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, as the region is impacted by wildfire smoke and heat waves. This project seeks to identify which interventions best serve the needs of the community, and result in reduced exposure and improved health outcomes.

Gabrielle Wong-Parodi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth System Science and the Environmental Behavioral Sciences, and a center fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University. She applies interdisciplinary social science approaches to understand responses to environmental change, and designs and evaluates interventions that promote resiliency and sustainability.
