This lecture is part of the David Bradford Energy and Environmental Seminar Series, organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and Environment. The seminars highlight scholars and practitioners from various fields working on critical research related to science policy. We invite speakers to share new research they are working on, focusing on important policy-relevant issues. Since its inception in Fall 1999, this series has hosted many speakers who are influential in science & environmental policy. Attendance by Princeton students, faculty and staff is encouraged.

All seminars are open to the public on a limited basis with approved RSVP to ccrosby@princeton.edu

SPEAKER BIO:

Vijay Limaye is an environmental health scientist working as a Climate Change and Health Science Fellow at NRDC. He is broadly interested in addressing international environmental health challenges—quantifying, communicating, and mitigating the risks associated with climate change—with a focus on the public health burden of air pollution and extreme heat events. Prior to his role at NRDC, he worked for three years as a scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regional offices in San Francisco and Chicago, focusing on Clean Air Act regulatory implementation, risk communication, citizen science, and air-quality monitoring policy. Dr. Limaye has conducted interdisciplinary research quantifying the health impacts of climate change-triggered air pollution and heat waves for populations in the U.S. and India. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a PhD in environmental epidemiology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
