Last Meeting of Season Tonight

Join us at our society’s last meeting before summer break (July & August). Come out to hear Andrew Devlin as he presents the results of some intense research he and his colleagues have recently completed at UBC.

Towards a Less Carbon Intensive Built Environment: Evidence and Ideas for South of the Fraser

Andrew Devlin is a Vancouver-based researcher specializing in the interactions between the built environment, urban mobility, air pollution and health. He has lead and co-authored various studies and reports on these topics directed at the Metro Vancouver region, including a comprehensive empirical study exploring the active transportation benefits of walkable approaches to community design and, more recently, the first structural analysis of the relative effects of neighbourhood urban form and regional accessibility on activity patterns and greenhouse gas emissions. Findings from his work have been used for local outreach and in policy development at the municipal level and have been presented at numerous conferences and workshops across Canada. Andrew's technical expertise are centred on database development, emissions modeling, and advanced statistical and spatial analysis method. Andrew holds a an MA in Resource Management and Environmental Studies from the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at UBC and a BES in Urban & Regional Planning from the University of Waterloo.
