His background ranges from landscape change to sea level rise impacts to collaborative approaches to equitable climate adaptation in large coastal cities. Currently, he is the Deputy Director of Climate Science and Risk Communication at the Mayor’s Office of Resiliency in New York, where he works to integrate climate information into all aspects of city decision-making. Previously, he led the Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay. While at SRIJB, Adam co-designed Cycles of Resilience, a participatory process to empower communities to develop climate action plans developed with community leaders, civic non-profits, and scientists and developed an urban extension program with Sea Grant including community flood monitoring. Adam has advised Federal agencies and numerous states, including California, Maryland, New York, and New Jersey. Mr. Parris also directed NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, a network of 10 regional centers that help expand the nation's capacity to prepare for and adapt to climate. He has co-edited two books and co-authored nearly a dozen papers both research and nonfiction. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Environmental Geology from Bucknell University and a Master of Science in Geology from the University of Vermont. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, two kids and dog, who are a constant source of inspiration, humility, and good humor.Allison Bridges recently completed an Earth Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship at Columbia University and is now a Lecturer in the Sustainability Management Graduate Program and a Fellow at the New York City Mayor’s Office of Resiliency. Allison’s postdoctoral research focused on the use of sustainability indicators in decision making, post-disaster recovery and resiliency, and policies for decarbonization. Supported by a National Science Foundation interdisciplinary traineeship for her Ph.D. in Urban Planning and Policy at Rutgers University, Allison researched human-environment linkages in urban areas, strategic sustainability planning, and equitable urban land use. Prior to earning her Ph.D., Allison worked for the World Bank in renewable energy infrastructure and for the World Health Organization in disaster response. Her current work with the Mayor’s Office of Resiliency is supporting a new engagement initiative called the Climate Knowledge Exchange that seeks to take stock of the current state of climate knowledge in NYC. + Zoom Campus Events
