A Virtual Discussion and Q&A on the Central Park Climate Lab

Join us on August 23 from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm for a virtual discussion and Q&A with Michelle Mueller Gamez, Manager of Climate Change Research at the Central Park Conservancy Institute for Urban Parks, to get a behind-the-scenes understanding of this vital work.

Michelle’s approach to climate research is interdisciplinary. She is an urban planner, writer, map maker, and occasional illustrator. In addition to data analysis, she uses oral histories, archives, and culture to study the relationships between people, the natural world, urban infrastructure, and land use.

She previously worked at 100 Resilient Cities in partnership with the Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes at Columbia University. She was also a research assistant for the City Infrastructure Equity Lab at MIT and a consultant on regional water planning and climate adaptation at WRI. Michelle holds a Master’s in City Planning from the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT and a BA from the University of Texas at Austin.

The mission of the Central Park Conservancy is to preserve and celebrate Central Park as a sanctuary from the pace and pressures of city life, enhancing the enjoyment and wellbeing of all.
