Undergrad’s research project leads to publication of role play simulation

Written by:

CEE junior Monica Oliver’s UROP research from spring 2010 led to the publication of a role play simulation that will be used as a teaching tool in Harvard Law School’s Program on Negotiation. “Helping Cities Adapt to Climate Change Risks” helps city officials and other stakeholders understand the technical and policy issues created or exacerbated by climate change, particularly issues at the interface of urban planning and civil engineering, such as housing retrofits. Professor Lawrence Susskind of the Department of Urban Studies and Planning supervised Oliver’s research. More information.
