Milad Zabetimld.zabeti@gmail.comnon-affiliateI'm an architect with Master degrees in Architecture for Sustainability and Civil Engineering. I'm currently practicing architecture in a firm in Cambridge, MA. I have two years of research experience on the Urban Heat Island phenomenon and its impact on human thermal comfort considering urban form, materials and climate change scenarios. I have two years of experience in using 'ENVI-met', which is a helpful modeling tool, for the study of microclimates in urban environments. I'm also proficient in architecture modeling tools such as Revit and SketchUp.My initial idea is to study the impact of climate change on the microclimates in the scale of a neighborhood or a cluster of urban blocks in Boston and eventually its consequences on human thermal comfort. Several scenarios can be defined and studied considering changes in temperature, humidity, wind velocity, solar heat gain etc. and also advancement in urban materials, urban form, and human interaction and behaviour in urban areas in the year of 2050 can be implemented in modelings. Can we suggest an urban form which can better adapt itself to very likely changes in microclimates in order to protect the humans and still serve the functions? Can we redirect potential destructive winds through implementation of those forms? Can advancement in material science help us reducing solar heat gain in summer and increasing it in winter to prevent extreme weather conditions? These are some of the fundamental questions that can be discussed in the idea competition.

Danielle Alexanderdanielle.joan.alexander@gmail.comnon-affiliateI am a landscape architect practicing at Reed Hilderbrand in Cambridge MA. I am also a member of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps. My past published research is on urban food systems. Harvard BA / UVA MLAI am interested in answering these questions collaboratively - contact me if you would like a landscape architect for your team. I have a particular focus on environmental equity and public health.

Nick Lutskolutsko@mit.eduPostdocHi! I'm a postdoc in EAPS, mostly focusing on atmospheric science. My work uses a mixture of theory, modeling and observational data analysisNo specific ideas, but I am keen help out if a group needs a climate scientist

Björn Lütjenslutjens@mit.eduGraduate Student16-AeroAstroHi, I'm Graduate student at AeroAstro working on autonomous carsI am working on autonomous vehicles applied to mobiliy on demand systems. I am interested in analysing the impact of large-scale autonomous mobility on demand systems on the climate. Additionally, any project with autonomous vehicles arises my interest.
