Talk Title: Strengthening Social-Inclusivity in Civil and Environmental Systems: Cases for Food-Energy-Water Equity and Applications to the Built Environment
Matters of racial/ethnic and socioeconomic equity have not always been a central feature of food-energy-water studies. I have begun to address this gap in research by developing and employing innovative methodology in collaboration with cross-disciplinary scientists. The associated studies show that land, greenhouse gas, and water food consumption impacts vary in statistically significant ways across U.S. Black, Latinx, and White populations. Furthermore, these study methods and findings have tangible application to future studies around the world as well as global environmental degradation implications. Join me to learn more about the details and how my future research directions can be applied to the built environment.
Dr. Joe F. Bozeman III originally hails from Dayton, Ohio. His Ph.D. is from the University of Illinois at Chicago UIC in Civil Engineering. His work has been featured in major outlets and won several awards such as the 2020 Publication Excellence in Environmental Engineering Science award, 2018-2019 Top Downloaded Paper honors, with media features in Popular Science, the Geographical Magazine, and NPR among others. Dr. Bozeman has spent more than a decade working in the private and public sectors on energy and environmental sustainability matters and serves as a postdoctoral Research Associate for UIC\'s Institute for Environmental Science and Policy.
