About the speaker:

Anguelovski is an ICREA Research Professor, a Principal Investigator, and Head of the Gender, Diversity, and Wellbeing Committee at ICTA-UAB. She also currently coordinates the Catalan-funded SGR (Research Group) BCNUEJ. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Studies from Science Po Lille and a Master’s in International Development at the Université de Paris 1 Sorbonne, pursued a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management at Harvard University and obtained a PhD in Urban Studies and Planning from MIT before returning to Europe in 2011 with a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship

As part of collaborative and individual international research projects, she studies how urban environmental injustice is materialized and contested. Currently, her focus is on four main research areas: 1) The politics of the green city as a growing global planning orthodoxy; 2) The social and racial manifestations and impacts of green gentrification for historically marginalized residents; 3) Urban planning for health and wellbeing, with a focus on health equity and justice; and 4) Justice and inclusivity in climate adaptation planning, including distributional and procedural insecurities produced by adaptation plans, interventions, and land use configurations and regulations. Her most current work examines the compounding environmental racisms and injustices faced by marginalized groups when exposed to climate impacts (e.g. heat, flooding), resilient infrastructures, and displacement pressures.
